HACKERS GROUP ANONYMOUS ATTACKS INDIAN GOVT SITES AND TWITTER
Hacker group “Anonymous” have hacked “Twitter India”, avenging the Indian government for allegedly blocking its Twitter handle “OpIndia_Revenge”.
“Anonymous” claimed to have attacked Reliance Communications filter servers and redirected web users to a site that hosted a warning to the Indian government. The message also appealed to the people as well as the Opposition.
Reliance have blocked sites, including torrents, Vimeo etc. Also Reliance claims that they would continue to block websites without court orders and other ISPs were free to join them too.
Few India Twitter users were redirected to a message from “Anonymous Op India” when they tried to access Twitter. The message said- “Told you not to mess with free speech and lesser with Anonymous. Government of India, you know what you did wrong. You caused our twitter account to be blocked, now we will show you what anonymous is capable of doing (sic)”. The message warned the Indian government if it didn’t “restore” Anonymous Op India’s Twitter handle.
Though, till now the hacking appeared to have had a limited impact !!
CityHyd feels “Anonymous” are doing the right thing, after all, internet is a free space and no government or private body should ban anyone or anything. It’s a free world !!
