The official website of the Indian Railways has once again been hacked by Pakistani Hackers group. This time, it is done by two hackers named as " H4$N4!N H4XOR" and "HUNTER KHAN" from the "Pakistan Haxors CREW(PHC)".
The home page of the site is not affected. However, hackers managed to upload a "index.html" in a subdirectory("http://er.indianrailways.gov.in/cris/edrm_site/notice/index.html")
Not the first time :
Last August, Pakistan Cyber Army hacked into Indian Railways and uploaded their defacement page in the same "edrm_site" directory with a short message "Hello Guys. Aooooo Indian Railway Pawned LOL. Go to Hell This hack in reply to Pak Army Website".
In 2012, another hacker with handle "AiNAB", a member of Pakistan hacker group called Pakistan cyber pyrates, defaced multiple sub-domains of Indian Railways.(Refer: http://www.zone-h.org/archive/notifier=AiNAB/page=2)
At the time of writing, the website still shows the defacement message. It is still unknown whether the previous vulnerability hasn't been fixed or hackers discovered new vulnerability.
It is worth to note the "H4$N4!N H4XOR" has hacked several Indian websites including Tamilnadu popular TV channels Jaya TV and Sun TV.
