Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal has informed that Indian hackers attempted to hack the official website of Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) for over two hours on Saturday.
The hackers attempted to block the website in the US, Britain, Holland, and Singapore. The website in Thailand and Norway was also affected. The official website has started working in different countries now, as being reported.
The FO spokesperson said that New Delhi had stooped to such tactics out of fear of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) proceedings against Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.
“India is trying to hurt us [Islamabad] in many different ways … but, we will not let them succeed in their nefarious designs,” Dr. Faisal told the media.
Dr. Faisal also said that the Information Technology (IT) department of the ministry has initiated necessary steps to restore the website, also adding that because of preventive measure, the cyber-attack was foiled in some countries.
This recent cyber-attack took place in wake of the Pulwama attack in which 44 Indian paramilitary soldiers were killed in the Indian-occupied Kashmir on Thursday.
