"Press Club Of India" Website Attacked By Alleged Pakistani Hackers

This appears to be in retaliation to an Indian hacker group attacking the Pakistan People's Party website after ceasefire violations committed by Pakistan at the Line of Control.

The ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan at the Line of Control seem to have spilled into cyber-space. On October 8, the Pakistan People's Party's website was allegedly hacked by Indian hackers (pictured above).

dna reports that the attack seems to be a virtual counter-attack to the recent ceasefire violations by Pakistan at the Line of Control (LoC) along Jammu & Kashmir. The hackers posted pictures on the site, making fun of PPP's Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for his comment on Kashmir last month. At the time of writing, the website is still down and cannot be accessed.

In the meme addressing Bilawal Bhutto, the hackers say, "To Citizens of Pakistan, Pakistan's Army, Pakistan Peoples Party and specially Mr. Bilawal Bhutto, without any violence let me tell you that Pakistan will never get Kashmir. This is the Truth. You have to accept it :)"

They add, "So Mr. Bhutto You Want Kashmir?"

On October 9, in what appears to be a retaliative attack, the Press Club Of India's website fell prey to hackers who claim to be Pakistani.

The homepage of the Press Club website was altered as such:

The alternate website for the Press Club of India seems to be intact and free from any hack.

At the time of writing, the Press Club has not taken any actions to reverse the hack. BuzzFeed has reached out to the Press Club for comment but received no immediate response.
