Hackers post ‘Pakistan zindabad’ slogans on Goa BJP website
‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans were posted on an old website of the Goa BJP after it was hacked by unknown persons on Monday. The cyber attacked was carried out by a group called “Team PCE”. An individual’s name “Mohammad Bilal” was also posted on the website page.
After defacing the website, the hackers left a mail address - mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reacting to the incident, a BJP IT cell functionary said that the hacked website was an old one, adding that the new Goa BJP website had the anti-hacking security measures.
The functionary said that BJP Goa general secretary Sadanand Tanavade had refused to divulge the details of the cyber-attack, therefore, the party didn’t file any police complaint regarding this.
This was not the first time the website of a state BJP unit was hacked. In April this year, the website of the BJP's Jammu and Kashmir unit was also hacked.
