Delhi’s BJP website got hacked on Friday night. The hacker group called Muhammad Bilal TeAM [PCE] posted hate messages against India and PM Narendra Modi. They asked the country to remember on 27 February.
The website, under the same bjp.org domain, appears to be landing on a page delhi.bjp.org/kashmir, which redirects to a single page site, with a message from the hackers.
Messages including “Ghar main ghuss kar marain gy” and “I can lie a lot, can I also get a ‘Vir Chakra’ like Abhinandan?” was posted on the website.
The message ended with a hashtag that used abusive language against PM Modi, and an Email ID - firstname.lastname@example.org - probably the hacker group’s email ID.
Security researcher Elliot Alderson, who often posts about the Indian government’s online lapses, pointed out the hack on Twitter. He said that the page, Kashmir.html got loaded from a service called PasteBin, which allows users to make dummy web pages.
Alderson further pointed out the same domain of the Delhi BJP and the main BJP website, saying that the Delhi BJP site is just a sub-domain of the BJP website’s domain. He said that both are on the same server.
