Pakistani Hackers VS Indian Hackers Cyber war who wins?
In this current age of Technology wars some battles are not faught by weapons or Guns but also Through Technology.Since the advent of Information Technology among the masses of South Asia in mid 1990s, the pace of cyber wars between Pakistan and India have also been increased.
Cyberwars between the two countries first started in May 1998, when India conducted its nuclear tests. Soon after India officially announced the test, a group of Pakistan-based hackers called milw0rm broke into the Bhabha Atomic Research Center web site and posted anti-India and anti-nuclear messages.Recently it seems like a Cyber war has been started between Pakistani Hackers and Indian hackers.This all started when IGCOE Hacker from India hacked Punjabi Pakistani Police official website
In Response to it Pakistani Hackers hacked India's following websites:
The suspected group to hack these sites was Pakbugs.Later Indian hackers a group named HMG striked back and hacked several Pakistani websites including the Popular OGRA
This cyber war is still going resulting in defacement of several Pakistani as well as Indian websites.
Who Wins the battle?
Now you must be curious that who wins the battle Pakistani hackers or Indian Hackers, the answer is no one.Its not a win-lose situation but its a loose -loose situation.Both Pakistani and Indian websites got hacked which means that both the countries suffered loss.This battle may result in loss of innocent people who are not the part of war.
Knowing Hacking does not mean that you should use it negatively or use it to gain access ans stealing other persons personal data.I am my self a Pakistani and well aware of all Hacking techniques but i have never used it negatively and abusively, but i use my Hacking skills for positive purpose e.g recovering lost email accounts or Personal data of others etc i.e helping out other people rather than Hacking email account and Stealing Private data.
How website got hacked?
I have carefully studied some of hacked sites.The method which is used widely is SQL Injection.SQL Injection involves entering SQL code into web forms, eg. login fields, or into the browser address field, to access and manipulate the database behind the site, system or application
When you enter text in the Username and Password fields of a login screen, the data you input is typically inserted into an SQL command.
The other methods which i think which were used are Brute force or Dictionary Attacks.The hackers might have cracked FTP password to gain access to Server.I have written a Detailed Post on Common methods to hack a website.Which will tell you some of popular methods which hackers use to gain access to a website.
Message for both Pakistani and Indian Hackers:
I personally request both of you to stop this cyber war.This cyber war will never end this way and will infect both countries relations..Lets establish a friendly relations and use our skills in a positive manner.
Remember what Quaid - e- Azam said:
"An enemy of today is a Friend of tommorow"
In a major embarrassment for the Central Bureau of Investigation, A group of self-proclaimed paki hackers named "Pakistani cyber army" hacked in Indian CBI website, cbi.nic.in, on Friday night, Dec 3. The netizens who logged on to the official home page of CBI website were redirected to a different page with a warning message. "Indian cyber army should not attack Pakistan websites," the hackers exclaimed that they are from Pakistan cyber army. The warning note also carried the information regarding controls provided by the National Informatics Center, an authority which works computer server across the country.
Message for upcoming Hackers:
My 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 and later will end you in trouble.
