BSNL Website Hacked By Pakistan Cyber Army: Report

A Pakistani hacker group, Pakistan Cyber Army claims to have hacked the website of Bharat Sanchaar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), a telecom operator owned by the Indian government, according to The Hacker News. The report mentions that information of 10,000 users including names, email addresses, phone numbers and location, has been compromised, and that The group has also managed to hack into BSNL’s internal pages containing details of the internal working of its VPN, details of circuits and other technical details.

(More screenshots at The Hacker News)

The group has also posted screenshots of the hacked pages, which show defaced BSNL admin pages containing user data and data related to VPN circuits. The message that the group has left indicates that it does not have a website, Facebook page, forum or e-mail address. Note that MediaNama is unable to verify the authenticity of the screen shots, and that The Hacker News claims to have received them via e-mail.

The Pakistan Cyber Army did not disclose the motive behind the hack. Interestingly, there is a forum by the name Pakistan Cyber Army, though we were not able to find any announcement related to the BSNL hacking there.

Last two months have been particularly eventful in terms of cyber attacks, when Anonymous India attacked the server of the National Informatics Centre (NIC), and took the Indian Army website down for an hour.
