Pakistan/India hacker skirmishes.



The Hindustan times has an article on the latest round of India vs. Pakistani hacker/IT online skirmishes. It sounds as though there has been a recent rash of back and forth with Pakistani cracker groups trying to break into and deface Indian web sites and India trying to get word out to help secure the sites against the attacks. This is not a new thing….


I remember several years back there being a few government websites (either India or Pakistan I can’t recall) that were DoS’ed for a period of time by crackers from the opposite country. It’s usually more of an inconvenience than anything else, however if a country relies too heavily on their access to certain internet based information services, that’s something that could certainly could be exploited. After all it’s next to impossible to defend against certain types of DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.
