Pakistan government websites hacked

17 Feb 2019

Several Pakistan government websites have reportedly been hacked by a group calling itself 'Team I Crew'. The hackers defaced the websites by leaving messages on the screen: ‘We will never forget #14/02/2019’ and ‘Our heartfelt condolences to the families of CRPF jawans who sacrificed their lives in #PulwamaTerrorAttack’. Sources within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was one of the websites attacked, told DawnNewsTV that the attacks are believed to be of Indian origin.

Cyber-attacks can have a background in international relations, or bring about the consequences that can escalate to a political and diplomatic level. An increasing number of states appear to be developing their own cyber-tools for the defense, offence and intelligence related to cyberconflict.

The use of cyber-weapons by states - and, more generally, the behavior of states in cyberspace in relation to maintaining international peace and security - is moving to the top of the international agenda.
