Myth About Indian Hackers: True Story Behind Underground Hackers


Myth About Indian Hackers: True Story Behind Underground Hackers

GUEST POST BY Vaidehi Sachin

Cyber war is nothing but an eye wash, actually speaking cyber war is a created hype by some old kids, in which one thinks himself a soldier and others as toy guns. And the computer as his Kingdome, little knowledge he possess is his wisdom, and tools he posses for hacking are his arms and ammunitions. The so called cyber war soldiers are living in their own imaginary world and each one of them thinks he is superior amongst them. By giving too much importance to this particular term ‘Cyber War” creates nothing but a fear in common public and hackers aspiring this carrier as his living and passion. These so called war participants are nothing but notorious small time criminals. They should be punished. If one particular group of hackers is clutched then maximum can be traced and the authentic hackers can sustain with integrity. its hight time to face of these disguised hackers and expose thenm to common masses.

The hacking rivalry between Pakistani and Indian hackers is known to almost everyone. Pakistani hackers are known to be most unethical hacker by Indian hackers. This cyber war is never going to stop. Because the group of hackers those who are hand in gloves with each other are making this trait as publicity gimmick. It’s just as you scratch my back and I scratch yours. This has infected several countries across the globe. In the age of Technology wars the battles are not fought by weapons or atomic powers but it’s on raise through the advent of Information Technology, the pace of cyber wars between Pakistan and India have also been increased. All these low profile hackers are either engineering students, or just school going kiddos those who learned hacking from various tools openly provided on search engine. It’s itch in them to create a horrifying aura and over hype the meager issues. One particular group from north is doing this. I know after publishing this article they may create trouble for me as their basic instincts are destructive. I give damn because I am blessed with best hacker friends and a brother to tackle these goons. Actually Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organized, processed, and available to the right people in a format for decision making, it is a burden, not a benefit.



Actually the genuine Cyber wars between the two countries first started in May 1998, when India conducted its nuclear tests. Soon after India officially announced the test, a group of hackers called milw0rm broke into the Bhabha Atomic Research Center web site and posted anti-India and anti-nuclear messages. This hacking had an intention to protest the deal. Recently it seems like a Cyber war has become publicity tool between Pakistani Hackers and Indian hackers. The irony is that they use country flags to display the bonding of love for own country. If by hacking Indian sites Pakistani hackers are doing crime then by doing the same even Indian hackers are criminals. In the recent past when I started interacting with hackers for my forthcoming magazine “cyber Ghosts”, I met different characters. They have got nothing to do with your country; they have got nothing to say expect displaying their credentials as some great hacker. Some groups have made mockery of this little knowledge, they peruse schools and collages conduct seminars, charge the students and make big money by making this subject a taboo. Young minds nowhere take any participation in securing system they just get attracted to word hacking, the practice starts with hacking girlfriends mail, password, then school website domain. And this extends in to hacking all wanted and unwanted arenas. By conducting these kind of unofficial seminars, ( I am calling it unofficial because so far government recognized such training centers are hardly in existence} private so called ethical hacking training camps are mushrooming in every part of India. Blogging on learn hacking is another blot to this black trait. If you have glance at all theses so called sites and blogs, they all somewhat similar. Hardly will you find something authentic. This particular group of hackers are worst than terrorists. They are misguiding youth of this country. They themselves have divided in to various groups, Andhra hackers, south hackers, Nepali hackers, Punjabi hackers, Maharashtra hackers, tiger hackers (from Kolkata) etc etc.. There is no harmony amongst them; they all are Indians but still big rivals to each other. Some of them even created Cyber army.
The history says this all started when IGCOE Hacker from India hacked Punjabi Pakistani Police official website. In Response to it Pakistani Hackers hacked India's several official websites. Cyber war has gone in so deep and hidden in horrifying layers. This techno war has taken a cruel shape. There are so many Indian hackers working for Pakistan, and at the same time there are many Pakistani hackers just committed to their work having to bad or malicious intention against India. For me these Indian hackers are the biggest threat for my country. Tracing these hackers is not a big issue but it’s difficult because they are operating from other countries. But the question remains here is why Government has failed to track down Indian unethical or Pak agencies agent hackers of India? There should be a combing operation to eradicate this evil. As per Indian constitution hacking is crime let it be ethical or unethical. The irony is that other nations are using these hackers to sabotage neighboring countries as well as protect their own cyber world. Actually if given a chance or If Indian hackers taken into confidence they can create wonders by protecting entire cyber network of India because India has most efficient hackers on the globe. But unfortunately they have gone haywire. I would like to site an example here buying domain is not difficult, the demine owner keeps all the security procedures, he posses all panels with him. Key panel excess is always with a demine owner. Let any password or admin go here and there but server’s crucial info is always with the domain owner and every activity is traced here. One can hack http but not the domain WHICH IS EASILY RECOVERABLE. The hacking is done on very superficial level of these particular websites, but hundreds of such low profile sites are hacked and yet not recovered. Why? Who is doing it? Who the supporters are? It’s a big mystery of this hacking industry.

No doubt Both Pakistani and Indian websites got hacked which means that both the countries suffered security threats. This battle may result in loss of innocent people who are not the part of war. So called great hackers website was hacked In December 2009 it was Fadia’s business site, hackingmobilephones.com was hacked by a spammer promoting pharmaceutical products for erectile dysfunction. The question remains here is why this so called “INDIA’S BEST HACKER” couldn’t protect his site from other hackers? If given a chance and assurance to capable hackers of this country they can do much much… more than Fadia. Its high time Government should take help of these hackers to protect our own cyber network and use them as cyber army. The recent Independence Day was a nightmare for some of the webmasters and website owners of both India and Pakistan. The attack was started by Pakistani hackers defacing some Indian websites on 14th August; this was followed by counter attack from Indian Hackers. In the counter attack from both the sides’ lot of websites were hacked and defaced. The attack was started by Pakistani groups called Pak Cyber Army and PakHaxors, these groups have defaced around 10-20 websites .the counter attack was lead by Indian hackers called Indishell and Indian Cyber Army who are claiming to deface more than 2000 Pakistani websites but Zone-h data confirms the 1000+ figure. Indian hackers always thought they were too sophisticated to fall into the hands of the rough cops in this country, whom various human rights groups routinely accuse of brutality. Why should government and police is so merciless with the hackers? They want to be on the official side of Internet security now but they are scared because they are treated as a criminal then it leaves an unpleasant taste. Indian hackers don’t have a strong united community, so it’s difficult to tell if there is a drop in activity may be that’s the reason the hackers are lying low. Nobody wants to mess again.
