Geo TV, arguably the the largest TV station of Pakistan, was hacked moments ago by a hacker group that calls itself “G-Force”. Hackers said that attack on Geo TV website is result of unjust Pakistani system that is targeting Axact while ignoring so many other important matters.
G-Force is a group of veteran hackers who had fought Pakistan’s first cyber war with India back in 1997. However, they had been quite for a long now, until few days back they revived through a twitter account and noted that they will target all non ProPakistani elements.
If you are not a Pro Pakistani, then we are against you. Expect us.

Defaced website of Geo TV read that FIA and all other law enforcement agencies got active against Axact with-in few hours of NYT article and the main accused was arrested with-in seven days of initial report. Hackers, while appreciating LEA’s role, questioned that why other important issues couldn’t be resolved with such pace, for example:
- May 12, 2007 incident in Karachi, where dozens of citizens were slaughtered in broad daylight
- Baldia Town Fire: Over 300 people burnt live
- Model Town massacre: Citizens were killed in front of TV cameras, live transmission, but where was this speed that LEA’s have shown in Axact case?
- Saulat Mirza accusing Altaf Hussain and other senior members of MQM for taking orders for killing people, but no has questioned anyone.
- BBC published many documentaries of murder, corruption, money laundering of Mr. Nawaz Sharif, Altaf Hussain, Asif Zardari an other political leaders, but none of them have been brought to justice? why?
G-Force further questioned Pakistani media that why only hatred and negativity is spread? Hackers said that reporting news is one thing, but media cooks up news and shapes them as they want, all for commercial gains.
G-Force said that they will keep hitting back until things aren’t straightened in Pakistan.
At the time of writing of this story, Geo TV’s home page is showing “Under maintenance” message.
