Historically, there have been significant instances of hacks of government and other Web sites around the world.
Muzaffarabad, Dec 1: The official website of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) Government has been hacked. The hackers have removed all the data placed on it.
The site (www.ajk.gov.pk) developed by the Information Technology Board now offers “cool and funny jokes” to be surfed through a search engine instead of information about the area, history, traditions, government and institutions POK.
The Dawn quoted an official source as saying that the alleged hacking had taken place three days ago, but the IT Board appeared to be unaware about it.
In 1997, the servers of the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) were hacked by ‘g-force’, a Pakistan-based hacker group. The group defaced the main servers, and copied the master database that was transferred to Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
