A few months back, the Pakistan Cyber Army hacked the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) website. During the raid, they had gained access to over 10,000 users' information, which included names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers and location details and now, the website has got hacked again. A group by the name of Team_H4tr!ck have hacked the website and have ironically claimed that user files and information is safe with them. Also they’ve mentioned that the site security of BSNL’s home page isn’t exactly something to be proud of. They’ve warned them saying, ‘If you do not update it, we will meet again’.
As reported by Telecom Talk, the hack was first spotted at 2:21 am on December 4th, 2011 and the group comprises of five hackers by the aliases x-c0p, nginx-adm1n, enc0der, k3rnel and sm0ky. The site isn’t loading currently, but as can be seen from the screenshot, things are looking pretty bleak for BSNL at the moment. Security is slowly becoming more of a farce, and we’re hoping that government companies up the ante, before sensitive information is leaked out.
