PTA Website Attacked, Hacker Demands Ban on Po*n Sites

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s website was hit by a hacker earlier in the evening. Hacker didn’t deface the website, instead a page was inserted into PTA server (which has been removed now).

This hacker is apparently the same person who had hacked supreme court website a week ago.

Hacker, which names himself as Zombie_KSA, has asked PTA to ban all websites containing explicit material. Same hacker had defaced Supreme Court website a week ago with a similar message to Chief Justice of Pakistan.

It merits mentioning here that PTA, Minister of IT and Chief Justice of Pakistan was written a letter by a 9th grader few months ago. The kid had demanded the authorities to ban all websites that contain objectionable material.

Update:

PTA has removed the damaged page from the server. A communication with PTA officials confirmed that PTA website is working properly and there’s no way of intruding into it.

Thanks AssiSMS for tipping


  • Pathologist

    great…. porn stuff should be BANNED permanantly

  • Maan

    Good Job !!

  • Suhaib Malik

    Probably PTA removed this page

  • danish

    I’m not getting it….
    in fact not in favour of such tactics, whatever their motives be…

  • abdullah

    Great job Zombie! Well done!

    We need you. The govt of pakistan is totally failed to prevent the new Generation from the worst of internet i.e ‘porn’. We are muslim and want total islam practically in our life. But govt has opened every door of evil, so, many people fall down in the bad envirnment. In china no one can watch porn or every explicited websites that is why thier children and students are moving forward in very revolutionized way, and eventually they developed themselves.

    if we provide the best education to our generation, we can develope ourselves very fast, but it cannot, cannot be achieved in the presence of porn websites and material.
    I in the last again appreciate the “Best of all IT profesionals” as he is using his knowledge and mind in the best of his nation. ALLAH bless you and your co. Keep it up until the enemies of Pakistan and Islam I mean the Munafiq Govt and Parlimentarians. And all those who have the authority of controlling such materials but they don’t do thier duty for the best of thier nation, either they are govt persons or IT profesionals.
    I invite all hackers to take such brave and courageous step in The Favor of Muslim Ummah.
    Hack all such important website until the govt doesn’t take serious action against the porn websites.

    ALLAH Save you from every worst situation.
    Take care of you.

      — In china no one can watch porn or every explicited websites that is why thier children and students are moving forward in very revolutionized way, and eventually they developed themselves.

      You REALLY don’t want to deal with their education system. Do you have any idea how many thousands of students commit suicide before their exams every year (and also after when they fail)?

      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/8561532/Nine-million-Chinese-sit-dreaded-exam-of-destiny.html

      What you see as the “product” of their school system is the people who SUCCEED not the people who FAIL. MILLIONS FAIL EVERY YEAR AND HAVE NO HOPE FOR A GOOD JOB.

      — And all those who have the authority of controlling such materials but they don’t do thier duty for the best of thier nation, either they are govt persons or IT profesionals.

      Thanks for making us “professionals” feel good about how you see our work.

      — Hack all such important website until the govt doesn’t take serious action against the porn websites.

      What stupidity. Instead of hacking our websites, shouldn’t they hack porn websites? What logic you possess!

  • apnamirpur

    in Pakistan these types of (porn) sites are working bur even in china these sites are permanently blocked …..

    Thanks to every one for nice comments i m feeling happy to know that such people are still alive …

      it’s just a hop, no porn website is hosted on this server where PTA wesbite is hosted

    • Talha Minhas

      Great Job Sam how u got all this are u hacker.
      plz tell me i need your help if u r .

  • Heathcliff

    The “KSA” I presume stands for “Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”. So this is apparently another terrorist, attacking Pakistan. It isn’t enough that UAE and KSA are the prime fundraisers for all militants operating in FATA/PATA, those who have been traced in bombings and attacks on Pakistani military. Now, we have these cyber terrorists, who wish to carve Pakistan in their fanatical interpretation of Islam.

    And lets not forget, that thanks to WikiLeaks and decades of reporting otherwise, we know how these Saudi kings and princes, who appear so pure and pristine in the daytime, get down to all sorts of napak behavior with imported _______, at night.

    This would all be sad, if it weren’t also utterly pathetic and pitiful. Who are these two-faced hypocritical Arabs, to train us, Pakistanis, on how to be good Muslims ?. How dare they even entertain this notion, that they can come over here and dictate to us, how to live.

    There are forces, pre-historic in composition, who wish to drag us to a time, before Islam. Before light. Ignorant, arrogant, murderous barbarians… looking for like-minded amidst us. Saying “yes” to this evil, is more dangerous than any po*n out there.

    [Comment Edited]

    • Shahid Saleem

      Not so simple. Just as we often claim that our elected officials (oddly elected by us) are hypocrites and theives and whatever, most Arabs can rightly claim that they never elected their “leaders”. So what their leaders do is not a reflection on them.

      In our case, where we DID elect the idiots in charge, we can’t say that.

  • Vicky

    I didnt see the point in putting a “*” in “Po*n”……and I still dont !!

    Good job Zombie.

    Chief justice can ban p*rn only if he is not a regular user of it… lolz.

  • ali

    itsss all bullshit , if someone is to see pron there are million of ways that he can watch it …. thers no point watsing energy and resources on this … the only thing that can BAN a po-rn is .. SELF-Restriction …. if u ban millions of site ther comes trillions more … be realistic

    • misa

      but one can try whats bad with effort some thing os better than nothing

      • Shahid Saleem

        That is like speedbreakers on busy roads to slow down speeders: good idea? bad idea? it affects 100% of the traffic including speeders but most people are not overspeeding.

        In fact, it does harm too: slows down ambulances.

        Someone probably thought something was better than nothing…and made it worse for 100% of all street drivers.

        Same with porn filters on a country network. If you are so concerned, then install it on your system.

  • misa

    Excellent job we need ban on porn sites

  • Saeed

    Dear Admin Bhai,

    PTA website itself hosted on the P***rn Servers so please consider this issue on very priority basis to remove the Identify of Pakistan (PTA) hosted on that servers.

    I don’t know why they hosted on that servers.

    • admin

      I have checked myself, there’s no porn site hosted on this server.

  • Abdullah, a pro-pakistani !

    First I answer to Shahid Saleem, You said that in China million of childern make sucide because of very strict and intensive schooling system, lets look and compare our and thier edu system, and the “Products”.
    I only ask you (Shahid Saleem) that if Chinese’ schooling system is worst and lethal for china then why and how China became A big economy? A big Power [that America (the so-called “SuperPower”) is begging China to not withdrew thier money (which is in trillions) from american’s banks?]
    How it developed itself in mere 62 years? !! (in contrast the others countries like britain, france, america etc have hundrends of years of struggle’s history).
    How they became the Top players and experts of Communication (that even they hijack the most secure systems of america and others countries) ?
    How did they make anti-sattelite missiles that america has become insane by this invention? Because even america is trying to make this system for itself. It is worth mentioning here that it is one of the most complex technologies of today era.

    Did the angels come down from the sky and help them?

    And about the report of Telegraph, I advice every one to look at it, they will find that there are many sentences which show that it is one-sided.
    Another point you arose is that the hacker must block the porn sites instead of govt’s, here I apologize by saying that you should go to a psycological hospital to treat your brain because you told so stupid words that even a donkey can understand the issue that instead of blocking billions of porn sites(yes billions!) one can easily block and hack the few important sites of govt, not for fun and bad intention, but only to show the importance of this serious issue to the govt and the have-authority persons, which (mean, Pornography) is devastating our nation’s children and valuable minds.
    Regarding your another point that I (abdullah) made you guy a “professinal”, I didn’t call you, I was calling the real professionals of IT, like the Zombie!
    About you I can only guess that you are Ignorant and free of Brain, I am not saying this! It is your comment which shows your this fact.

    HealthCliff should wait.

    • Shahid Saleem

      — You said that in China million of childern make sucide because of very strict and intensive schooling system, lets look and compare our and thier edu system, and the “Products”.

      No, I didn’t say million. Learn to read my friend.

      Also, compare with Western school systems: they produce high quality people without suicides. Which do you want?

      — if Chinese’ schooling system is worst and lethal for china then why and how China became A big economy?

      Sir you are so ignorant it hurts to reply to you. In the Chinese cultural revolution era (1966 uptil 1976) ALMOST ALL HIGHER EDUCATION WAS HALTED http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higher_education_in_China Universities nearly closed. Nothing. Read:

      — From 1967 to 1976, China’s Cultural Revolution took another toll on higher education, which was devastated more than any other sector of the country. The enrollment of postsecondary students can be used as example to illustrate the impacts. The number dropped from 674,400 to 47,800.

      Why grow so fast? Read your history: http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/issues8/index.htm See section on “Why Is China Growing So Fast?” It was NOT GROWING FAST AT ALL until 1979. In fact, it was so horrible that see how bad their export industry was all until 1990: http://www.starmass.com/china_review/imports_exports/import_export_trends.htm

      your belief that they did great stuff for their economy and contry in 62 years is 100% false. In 1979, FOUR OUT OF FIVE Chinese worked in agriculture.

      The growth had NOTHING to do with education, it had to do with free market.

      Also In 1950 China made it a requirement for all children to attend 9 years of school. By 1980, still only 85% of the country was covered by that rule. In other words, after 30 years, they still could not reach 15% of their youth.

      Maybe with your distorted view of history, you really do need a Chinese education :):):)

      — A big Power [that America (the so-called “SuperPower”) is begging China to not withdrew thier money (which is in trillions) from american’s banks?]

      For the uneducated folk: it’s called “trade balance.” If I give $100 to China to buy their products and China spends $85 on imports, etc, then they are left with $15. Continue that process for a few decades and that is why China is sitting on billions of dollars and have nothing to do with the money.

      In Pakistan it is the opposite because our imports are greater than our exports. Our IT industry’s exports probably does not match even one week’s imports of furnace oil for our electricity stations.

      — How they became the Top players and experts of Communication (that even they hijack the most secure systems of america and others countries) ?

      Yet more nonsense. Why are Pakistanis proud of the Brain virus? Did the Brain virus make us “top players and experts”??? With a population of over 1 billion people, of course oyu will find a few who can do top things. But that does not mean your idiot cousin can hack Pentagon drones.

      — How did they make anti-sattelite missiles that america has become insane by this invention? Because even america is trying to make this system for itself. It is worth mentioning here that it is one of the most complex technologies of today era.

      More ignorance from you. Soviets and Americans have had anti-satellite technology over 25 years ago.

      — And about the report of Telegraph, I advice every one to look at it, they will find that there are many sentences which show that it is one-sided.

      And then you googled to find references to prove me wrong and found none right?

      — even a donkey can understand the issue that instead of blocking billions of porn sites(yes billions!) one can easily block and hack the few important sites of govt, not for fun and bad intention, but only to show the importance of this serious issue to the govt and the have-authority persons, which (mean, Pornography) is devastating our nation’s children and valuable minds.

      there is NO TECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTION to block porn. ZERO. IT DOES NOT EXIST. That’s how stupid your “request” to zombia_ksa is. NO ONE IN THE WORLD HAS CREATED ONE. Even the Chinese do it by monitoring every site and all traffic that passes through their internet links. THEY DO IT MANUALLY.

      I am sure, you can find someone to sit and scan people’s traffic for porn. Maybe you want the job?

      — About you I can only guess that you are Ignorant and free of Brain, I am not saying this! It is your comment which shows your this fact.

      Ha ha, judging from the above ignorance you have displayed, well. I guess I know how much weight to give your opinion!

      • Shahid Saleem

        I should add that they don’t need to scan all traffic, but they do restrict VPNs and encryptions (just like PTA wants), and their firewall software (none of it Chinese, all imported from West) is a primary level of defence. they still rely on manual labor to track down suspicious traffic.

    • Multan

      China is far not for their schooling system, Its a war between Communism and Capitalism. Communism is winning. China are copy cats to American products

  • Imran

    Dear All,
    Nice comments and suggestions. And i am also in the favor of blocking porn sites.
    But i have some quires.

    1-> What about IT education?
    2-> What about parents responsibilities?
    3-> What about our responsibilities?

    I think Government must take action on the hand we must change ourselves. We have objections on every fault, but we are not contributing to solve those issues. Parents are not guiding children’s in proper way. They are not taking care of their online activities. Government is not at all responsible.
    And at end i am again in favor of blocking these sites.
    Regards

  • Mohsin Khalid

    PTA authorities should be discussing how to ban the po*n websites rather than if there servers are safe or not….

    • Shahid Saleem

      Maybe PTA can offer a reward. TEN LAKHS to the person who can develop software to block all sites.

      Me, I would just pull the cable, problem solved gimme money :)

  • Jon

    PTA should seriously think about this, if they can be hacked no others can be safe..

    • Shahid Saleem

      Oh please. government computers are easiest to hack. Think of the type of quality of employees who will work for terrible pay for government IT.

      All the good money is in private sector for that level.

  • Nauman Afzal

    If PTA does that traffic stats in Pakistan will go down substantially

    • Shahid Saleem

      Maybe they can be like Iran and stop people from getting more than 128kbit DSL.

  • Jameela

    It has been told hundreds of thousands of times to IT ministers but they haven’t taken any action against these websites.
    And beleive me, they will never block these websites……
    They r at the peak of corruption and they don’t care about next generations.

    • Shahid Saleem

      Neither do the parents of the children apparently who view porn.

      Responsibility for bringing up children comes from parents, not from ministers.

    Asslam-o-Alaikum,

    I think PTCL is a big hurdle for blocking P*rn sites, as it is generating alot of revenues for them.

  • If they start blocking so many porn websites, there will be huge load on PIE routers!

    And no one forces you to watch porn! Those who want can still bypass those router filters..! Even school going kids know how to use proxies and vpns..

    Moral:
    Instead of blaming govt, keep an eye on your kids!

    • Shahid Saleem

      Hear hear!

  • This guy is a cyber criminal, responsible for defacing many Pakistani websites and is on FIA’s wanted list. Plus, you can never fight evil by committing evil.

  • imran

    shahid saleem – congratulations bro, you won the internet.

    @ others, remember half of Saudi’s population (or more) are foreigners, the largest group being Pakistani/indian. Dont be surprised if half of the Pakistanis who grew up there include the word ‘KSA’ in their usernames/profiles, etc for the rest of their lives.

    Overall, the end justifies the means. If this kid has success, I support it.

      On the other: making sense.

      They’re not the same either! Ha ha!

    obviously porn sites MUST BE BANNED otherewise its a disaster for pak!

  • Abdullah, a pro-pakistani

    To, Shahid Saleem.
    I answer you once, because of the absence of PC and bieng a busy one. I am using Nokia 2700c, that is why I cannot answer in detail. Whenever I am free, I will clear your false concept about PTA, and west’s and Chinese Edu systems, if you could give me your e-mail.
    I would want to tell you that I’m not totally in the favor of chaina.
