Tit for tat: Mallu Cyber Soldiers hack Pakistan airport website

A day after Pakistani cyber miscreants reportedly breached the website of Thiruvananthapuram International Airport, a Malayali group on Thursday took revenge by hacking the website of Sialkot International Airport in Pakistan.

The group, Mallu Cyber Soldiers, informed the matter through a post on their Facebook page, Mathrubhumi has reported.

In the post, they had also asked the people to register their protest.


On Wednesday, a group called 'Kashmiri Cheethah,' had defaced the Thiruvananthapuram airport's website and posted the message that they are unbeatable. The hackers also posted the message: "Mess with the best, die like the rest," on the website.

The website was restored to its original state soon.

This is not the first time that Mallu Cyber Soldiers has taken revenge from Pakistan in an equal measure.

Mallu Cyber Soldiers made their first appearance in October 2014, when Pakistani hackers broke into Malayalam actor Mohanlal's official blog.

Nearly a year later, over a hundred Pakistani websites, including official government portals such as pakistan.gov.pk, president.gov.pk and cabinet.gov.pk., were hacked. Later, a group called Mallu Cyber Soldiers took the credit for the feat, saying that it was a payback for crashing the official portal of the Kerala Government.

In an exclusive interview with the IB Times India, a "Mallu Cyber Soldiers" member said the main aim of the group is to secure Indian websites from getting hacked as there is a big cyber war going on between India and Pakistan.

The group also helps recover defaced portals and inform the admins of those sites about the vulnerability and how those could be fixed.

Mallu Cyber Soldiers, an online gathering of security experts, prefers to remain anonymous and work toward protecting Indian websites from getting hacked.
