I wonder if it is much of a surprise for us to learn that the official website of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has been hacked, yet again, by the Pakistan Cyber Army.

And no, it isn’t the first time. The website had gotten hacked a couple of months ago, too, by the same outfit,
Stealing all the sensitive data like names, email addresses and phone numbers of the subscribers, claiming that the details were safe with them and they just wanted the government organization to better their security.

According to Telecom Talk, the hack was first spotted at 2:21 am on December 4th, 2011, and the group comprises of five hackers by the aliases x-c0p, nginx-adm1n, enc0der, k3rnel and sm0ky.

The website is currently loading just fine, but we think it’s high time the telecom operator concentrated more on cyber security.
