The cyber crime wing of the Central Crime Branch (CCB) police has commenced its investigation into the hacking of the official website of the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK).
The ruling party’s website - www.aiadmkallindia.org - was hacked by a group which calls itself Pakistan Haxors Crew.
The group posted a symbol featuring a skull and the Pakistan flag, and posted messages like “Islam Zindabad, Long Live Muslims , Pakistan Zindabad” and “HACKED BY H4$N4!N H4XOR”.
“We Are PHC (PAKISTAN HAXORS CREW) We Just Want Justice & Peace,” the group said in its post and provided an email id. A scroll with anti-India messages was also posted with names purported to be members of the group.
The site is now offline. Earlier, visitors were greeted with the message “This Website is under construction”. Now, it says “account is suspended”.
According to sources, Chennai Police confirmed the hacking attack and had the cyber team block the website.
Senior police officers are now working with cyber experts in the Cyber Lab at the Chennai Police Commissionerate to retrieve the ruling party site, sources added. “We have registered a case. Once the IP address is tracked, we can find out the country from which the website was hacked,” said a senior police officer.
