Hacker’s Group ‘Pakbugs’ Got Arrested Today

Government officials today announced that they had traced a gang of hackers and arrested at least five suspects involved in defacing thousands of domestic and international websites and online fraud.

The “internationally-known hackers” have been picked up in an operation spanning the country over the past few weeks, reported AFP, citing Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) senior officer Mian Idrees.

“We have unearthed notorious hackers? group ‘Pakbugs‘ and arrested five members of this group,” said the official.

The FIA said in a statement the group was involved in hacking or defacing thousands of websites belonging to government, non-government and international organisations.

“Pakbugs” founder Jawad Ehsan, alias Humza, remains at large and is believed to be based in Saudi Arabia, the statement said.

But it said co-founder Hassan Khan has been detained in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar, along with other members in Lahore, Bannu and Rawalpindi.

Idrees ruled out the hackers’ involvement in terrorism and said the men had been charged only with electronic crimes.

Pakistan, fighting terrorism and high-tech offences, in 2008 declared cyber-terrorism a capital crime, while electronic fraud is punishable by a prison term of seven to ten years.

  • Punish them as hard as they can. They are working against the country. I dont mind working them against other countries and else but ones who try to defame and attack our counties sites and infrastructure should be punished with full force.

  • It’s good to know that these evil genius people are arrested. The could use their skill for something beneficial for Pakistan.

  • Government should utilize their abilities to counter the cyber terrorism against Pakistani websites. They are not doubt assets of our nation as I have also heard of them long ago in 2004/2005 when they hacked few of Indian official websites and it was happening when Indian cyber attackers were defacing the Pakistani websites. Their abilities to Found such a community where people all over the Pakistan can contribute !

    YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL TO HACKERS THAT DUE TO THEIR EFFORTS YOU ARE SITTING OF SECURE SYSTEM.

  • i mean what the hell? india is continuously damaging pakistani cyber space and only few people are answering them then whats the point to punish them? let them fight against them but make sure they wont hack pakistani sites or commit crimes. i strongly condemn of punishment against them. ask them to utilize their skills against INDIA :(

    …..Ksecurity-Team …. Live Long Pakistan

  • I find it disgusting that people are suggesting that they be let go for rendering some kind of services to the nation. Your elitist urban upper middle class I’m-above-the-law mindset is despicable and visible when you demand that justice must not prevail.

    They are criminals who must serve their sentences. 11 counterfeit credit cards have been recovered from their possession, copies of passports and an MSR has been recovered which was being used in illegal activities.

    They are therefore guilty of forging official documents and obtaining credit card information and thus guilty of financial crimes as well.

    As for the defacing, here’s a list of the websites they defaced.

    http://www.zone-h.org/archive/notifier=ZombiE_KsA

    The number of .gov.pk websites is amazing as well and they defaced the official gateway pak.gov.pk, infopak.gov.pk and NR3C website as well. If their intention was to expose the security loopholes on existing webservers where government websites are hosted, they could have chosen another away of informing them rather than brandishing their capabilities by defacing state websites. The government websites they defaced include that of the NR3C, PAF, PCB, NPO, EAD, PID, etc.

    I cannot imagine as to how somebody can say that they should be let go when they are guilty of financial and electronic crimes. Such an attitude towards justice is disgusting and deplorable. No wonder, this society is unable to uphold the rule of law as visible from the remarks and comments of its’ erstwhile “educated” urban elite.

  • in Europeon countries they find hackers and give them better jobs and in Pakistan they got arressted…..
    India has again started Cyberwar against us and we are arresting our Master Minds

  • I dont hate hackers …i hate skids and noobs..
    pak bug team they are not speacil hackers they are just noobs…they only learning how to use tools …thats it

    they only know how to deface how to do pishing how to make trojan and they calll them self hackerz ..

    very good news taht they got arested ….i hate people how deface other site…

    what about hacker every one can be hacker like pakbugs …

    just go and joing hackforums.net and their are 100 of good video tut from whihc u can learn how to hack….

    pakbugs only know how to use sqli thats it …they just find any vlbn site and then just change their index and they are thinking they are big hackerz …..

    they are totaly noob real hacker will never get arested ……

    let me give u one example:…
    like u are a good programer and u make a good programe and then u just give me a source code of programing …what i will do i will just change the grpx and change the title …and i wll call my self that i m a good programer …

    its wrong ……..GOOD TO HEAR ALL FUckers WHO ARE INVOLED IN DEFACEING SHOUld BE ARESTED>>>>>

    MY ADVICE :
    HACK TO LEARN …DONT LEARN TO HACK

    • To be honest, YOU sound like a total n00b (or maybe a wannabe)..

      I guess you don’t even know the methods that these guys use. It ain’t easy, and they’re proving a point.

    • I know i am replying after 7 years of your post but pak bugs were arreested by FIA including my brother Taimoor a.k.a H4v0c , FIA caught one of the pak bugs member then send some links to all other pak bugs member by his id .. then when other pak bugs member clicked on it they got their locations and arrested them.

  • >> ProPakistani

  • haha.. exesoul! don’t ever say that again…
    you know i really like this stuff but ain’t learnt something special yet…

    and exesoul! Pakis are best in everything… and when it comes at fraud, corruption (hacking included) then they are super.

    and one of my friend. just 18 years old can get all of your site down.. but he is using this knowledge only for himself e.g stealing tools from site or e books etx… he is not using it for any other use

    and i am coming too.. INSHALLAH

  • @eXeSoul who are you kid?

    I agree that real good hackers will not get arrested so easily, specially by FIA (oopps..lol),

    FIA must have arrested these people for defacing Rehman Decoit’s website, and he must be pissed off with that.

    What a shame for all of us that these kids are in and those having serious criminal charges aren’t only out but head FIA.

  • lol i know pakis are best in what.!! :-P you don’t need to tell that.!

    first they started.! then we replied.!

    There are lots of core members of India who are busy in their Life, if they will come then sure Pakistani cyberspace get destroyed :|

    there is not a big deal to take down a site.!
    we took down pakbugs.com and pakhaxors.com many times.

    first they started to fight and abusing on the site.! then we rooted paki server.!

    Sorry mate if i hurt you.!

      • oh unknown! so you are discussing that who is criminal and who is no???
        hmmm!
        what was the NRO about?
        and who were pointed in the NRO?

        of course those who rule us. so, first of all arrest our rulers and get their jobs from them, then talk about the hackers

        • Do an NRO for hackers first and then join the hacking and politics. What is the relation between NRO and Defacment of websites??

          Grow up..

      guys but may br s0me of member’s are arrested…

  • This is brilliant news. I traced a gang of illegal activities in one of my serves in Canada and traced it to UK. Nelson College in UK reported that the cell numbers, zip codes and everything else I have given them are fake or throw-able so its not much help. I traced down all the way to Jehlum, PK where one of the members having cell number 0333-500-5001 was present. We talked and he admitted he is doing all this and that there is NO HARM is doing so.

    I personally think these sick-minded hackers who attack and destroy govt websites and institutional websites including NUML etc should be apprehended and given strict punishments including but not limited to keeping them away from a computer for long time.

    • If the admin wants to approve this, fine, if not I don’t care about PakBugs.com or any of their shitty gang.
