Indian Government Websites Hacked By Anonymous

In a shocking event today, many Indian Government Websites were hacked by a group called Anonymous. This seems to be an attempt to retaliate against the recent internet censorship adopted by India.Anonymous has opposed the banning of sites such as Daily Motion, Vimeo, Piratebay.They also seem to have not taken the Blogspot URL redirection to country specific URL's lightly.

Announcing the attacks, Anon_Central tweeted: "Namaste #India, your time has come to trash the current government and install a new one. Good luck."

The Following Websites of the Indian Government were hacked -

  • All India Congress Committee
  • Indian Supreme Court
  • Department of Telecommunications
  • Ministry of Information Technology
  • Jammu & Kashmir Police
India had taken a strict decision to ban certain websites and organizations from its Internet space as a way to control the internet and what was said about it.You can read more about this here - Kapil Sibal's Senseless Demands
