After recent defacement of some 130 Pakistani websites, including Punjab Police’s official webpage and in return the defacement of Indian CID’s website, some voices opined that a new cyber war between Pakistan and India is in the making.
However, a deeper look into the matter reveals that senior hackers are not supporting this rising conflict.
Back channel conversations with senior hackers from both side of the borders convey that they don’t want to get indulged into cross-hacking stuff any further. However, they are of the view that some kids are creating the unrest, which is bad for the economies of both the countries.
Part of these trouble creating hackers included Pakbugs, which got arrested by FIA, last Monday.
In response to these developments in past week, ProPakistani received a message from Pakistan Cyber Army, a.k.a PCA.
We know PCA for 5 famous and targeted defacement of Indian websites against Pakistan’s OGRA’s defacement.
Pakistan Cyber Army was established soon after OGRA’s defacement, and that too when some hackers were using abusive language on Pakistani Forums and Blogs.
After that particular activity in November 2008, PCA went underground, however, with recent developments – they are back with a formal message, which is as following (and is presented here un-changed):
“Message from Pakistan Cyber Army on arrest of Pakbugs Members
If anyone has doubt that we are not the one who defaced ONGC then get a life first. If people have forgotten, then we are the same guys who Defaced ONGC in response to the attack on OGRA. After which we did a peace deal with the groups involved on both sides of borders including “Pakbugs” and “ICW” but kids didn’t keep their promise and got arrested.
We told PakBugs many (many, many, many) times to not to deface/destroy Pakistani websites and infrastructure. We told them to take FIA and NR3C seriously – as these agencies are not bunch of NOOBS, we had warned Pakbugs that you people don’t know about the power and the resources that NR3C has got but they gave a damn to our words and ended up in their custody.
I feel sad about the kids but… it happened due to their carelessness and childish attitude, which eventually landed them in the jail.
If you people are upcoming hackers and don’t know about Prevention of Electronic Crimes Ordinance then go and read it on NR3C website. I fear that Pakbugs would have a jail of 7 years if they got trialed and if FIA bail them out with some punishment they should thank Allah and concentrate on their studies.
We always told Jawad (HUMZA) and other kids about the consequences that they may face if arrested. [Jawad correct me if I am wrong.
Request to FIA/NR3C
“It is our humble request to FIA (NR3C) authorities to consider the case realistically and don’t give the kids the capital punishment as they are kids and can improve if given a chance. If they got the capital punishment as mentioned in Prevention of Electronic Crimes Ordinance then their future will be ruined. Sir these are our kids and our force if given a direction“
Message for upcoming Hackers
Our message to upcoming hackers or people who are interested in this field is that there is nothing bad to have the knowledge of hacking or hacking techniques, what’s bad is the usage of such knowledge and skill against our own country, National and international organizations or departments – that may cause damage to our country and its repute in the world. Don’t push your efforts to get famous. The fame will come by the time.
Some of your kids out there think that organizations in the west give opportunity to the hackers, if that’s the case then you are living in a heaven of fools.
Don’t believe in such stories that hackers will have a good future. The person who has a criminal record cannot fly from the country or he can’t enter into a country legally – go and ask your elders about it.
Message for Indian Hackers
If Indian hackers think that the game is over then read our message once again “Don’t mess with Pakistan else you will lose both your Name and this Game”. If you think that “Pakbugs” got arrested and you have a chance to play then give it a second thought.
We are still awake for our country.
