The group was also responsible for the hacking of AIIMS Raipur’s website earlier this year.

Now, in retaliation, some unknown hackers (likely from Kerala) have hacked the Pakistan airport site.

Experts believe the hacking of airport websites can be used to get out crucial information about flights, which can have serious consequences. Moreover, leak of details about the individual airports – from logistics to facilities – is also dangerous.

Time and again, security experts have raised the issue of India’s weak cybersecuirty infrastructure. India ranks among the top 10 countries, with a large number of cyber crimes, ranging from online harassment to fraud, and even spying.

In 2013, the website of the Customs Department of the Indira Gandhi International Airport was hacked allegedly by a Pakistani hacker. He broke into the server, removed the content on the homepage and uploaded an image along with an audio file of a song.

The hacker also threatened the administrators with a message that read: “Secure it or I hack it again.”

India was also listed among the top five in the world to be attacked by ransomware — malware that forces its victims to pay a ransom through certain online payment methods to regain their data — as reported by Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab, a leading software security group operating in almost 200 countries and territories worldwide.
