Punjab University’s Website Gets Hacked

A group of students named “The Student Alliance” has defaced Punjab University’s official website, with an aim to stop the devolution of HEC.


Hackers have posted a bold-styled message on hacked pages to “Save HEC”.

It further reads:

Save HEC to save national integrity.

The defacement is done for a good cause. That is to spread awareness; take some time out to read/ understand the consequences of the dissolution.


We have determined that hackers have not damaged any data available on the website, however, it is certain that every index file is replaced with this defaced index file, which means that server wide URLs are defaced.

It merits mentioning here that Punjab University’s website is one of the most visited academia website in the country.


Website is back online now!

  • @admin; Please check before posting anything, the PU website is up and working absolutely fine.

  • people really think Vandalism of OUR OWN PROPERTY is good work?! Who are these commenters?

  • This is called the legal way of Hacking.
    Students roX!!
    This is a clear warning for Education Ministry and Government as well that no one wants to dissolve HEC.


    • So why dont you hack the GOVERNMENTS sites and not a university’s site? This makes no sense at all. does PU want to get rid of HEC? Is that why their site was hacked?

  • Look at the names of these guys…LOL.
