The hacker group know as Anonymous has shown its support for India’s Anti-Corruption Movement by hacking the National Infomatics Center (NIC) Website and placing this message:


The NIC is responsible for implementing and managing IT related projects including e-governance in India. Until now, most cyber attacks on India have been done by Pakistan based hackers as part of the on-going cyber-war between the two countries. Anonymous placed its logo along with a message for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the NIC website. The page was not accessible by Tuesday, but a google cache of the page still reveals the message.

There was however no data stolen by the hack, or any damage done, according to a government expert on cyber security. “This was more a playful threat, that exploited some weaknesses of the NIC site,” an NIC official said on condition of anonymity.
