In: BSNL site hacked

R. Dinakaran reports:

BSNL’s Telecommunications Journal website has been hacked by AnonOpsIndia.

The ‘Anonymous’ group that describes itself as “#OpIndia | Expect Us! ~ Anonymous #Hacktivists” in its Twitter handle, has added one more page to the journal website – – listing its demands to the Central Government.

The group has posted a message on the site asking the BSNL admin to patch up the site. “You have stored passwords in plain text. Shame! Is this your #DigitalIndia? We also have access to all BSNL databases now. No data on the server was tampered though. But we have taken a copy of all your databases. Patch up before the Chinese get their hands on this. It’s a goldmine.”


The group also claims that it has managed to get access to over “30 million records” from BSNL database. It says the records could be “bill summary, payment details or account details.”
