Sedulity Groups | Pakistani hackers deface inactive Southern Railways website
New Delhi: An inactive website of the Southern Railways www.southernrailway.gov.in has been defaced apparently by Pakistani hackers.
The hacker group that calls itself ‘Pak Cyber Pyrates’ replaced the home page of the website with a page with content that denounces India’s role in Kashmir.
The official Southern Railways website moved to a new domain www.sr.indianrailways.gov.in back in 2010.
Inactive websites are a soft target for hackers as they are not constantly monitored. Recently the hacker group Anonymous had targeted an inactive Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) website accusing the company of censoring content on the Internet.
Indian and Pakistani hacking groups are engaged in a cyber war of sorts with websites in both the countries being regularly attacked and defaced.
