Initially the Soneri website – which manages the online banking system of Soneri customers – was hacked by Pakbugs yesterday night. Later, Pak Cyber Army re-hacked the website and defaced the same page with their own message.
It is still unclear if customers’ data was compromised or not or if the online accounts were impacted by hackers.
Pakbugs displayed following message when it first defaced the bank’s website:
