Although seven years have passed but the wounds of Mumbai 26/11 are yet to heal. Yesterday the country remembered the martyrs of 26/11 on the seventh anniversary of the attacks, but Indian hackers found out a new way of expressing their anger against Pakistan for perpetrating the attacks by hacking 200 plus Pakistani websites.
An underground hacker told MAIL TODAY, “We have hacked over 200 Pakistani websites today. It was done to send across a message to the perpetrators that India won’t sit back. We are not seeking any monetary benefits. They took the life of innocents on this day, so 26/11 is the ideal time to convey this message when our brave soldiers laid down their lives for the country.”Although this act qualifies as cyber crime, many experts are of the opinion that the government should tap into such a talent pool of hackers and utilize their skills.
Dhruv Soi, founder, Torrid Networks Limited said, “Indian government can very well utilise such highly-motivated and skilled resources to work for the nation, the way Chinese Cyber Army works for China Liberation Army.”
