The website of Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited Mumbai – also known as MTNL Mumbai – has once again been targeted by a hacker, who claims to be from Pakistan. The hacker in question left a message on the website.
The message read, “MrCreepy Was Here Napsters CrEw Happy Independence Day Pakistan http://Facebook.com/m3creepy. Greets: SEEKER, Dr.FREAK, MKHAN SWATI, And All Pakistani Hackers :D”. In a post on the social networking site Facebook, the hacker also claimed that he has targeted the websites of Pune Traffic Police and janwani.org.
However, reports state that the two other websites are loading fine. On the other hand, the hacker has uploaded certain files on these websites, which can still be accessed through the direct links, which means that the administrators still have not cleaned the servers. More reports have revealed that the hacker was celebrating the Independence Day of Pakistan – which is on August 14, 2013 – by targeting official Indian websites, as it is evident from various posts on Facebook.
This is not the first time that MTNL website has been hacked. In 2012, the website was hacked by hacking group Anonymous, to protest against censorship of Internet security in the country. After that, a post on the Anonymous Operation India web page claimed responsibility for the incident.
