The hackers that defaced these three websites have been very, very busy. According to zone-h, “Manish” has hacked three prolific websites, and as of yet, they’ve yet to return to normal after being defaced. You can view the cache of the hacks here (pakpost.gov.pk, ppp.org.pk, ipdf.gov.pk). These websites are regularly used by the public, but right now they’re completely unresponsive and under the control of the hacker.
“Manish” delivered the following message:
….server pwned??? hell yesh …

Manish then proceeded to deliver his greetings to their followers and love to their father, their hacking teacher “Mannu”, and several other hackers. According to zone-h, this isn’t the first time that these sites have been hacked. The last reported hack on one of these three sites (to the Pakistan Post Office Department) occurred in 2013 by Indian hackers called indishell. The last time that the Pakistan People’s Party Website was hacked was last year in 2015 by a hacker called Kai-H4xOrR.
So far, we have yet to discover if the attacks are organized by a group of hackers, or if the hack was political in nature, but we’ll keep you posted on any updates about this independent hacker’s future attacks. We’re taking bets to see how long this site stays offline— try posting about it in the comments!
