Many who logged into the Kerala government website, http://www.kerala.gov.in/, on Sunday morning were in for a rude shock when they saw that the website was hacked and a message was posted by a group of hackers claiming to be Pakistani. The hackers also posted a picture of the Indian flag burning.
The message read - "Hacked by Faisal 1337" and read "Official website of Government of Kerala hacked!".
The hackers also wrote "Pakistan Zindabad", stating that "We are Team Pak Cyber Attacker" and "Security is just an illusion".
The picture has been blurred as it could be a violation of the Indian flag code.
It is believed that it is this group, which has a Facebook page here, could be responsible for the attack. It is also being claimed by they were responsible for hacking the Chennai Customs website few days ago.
At the time of writing, the Kerala government website was still down but an 'Under maintenance' page was on the homepage.
Updates to follow.
