PK: Hackers take down govt websites, leak bank records

A group of Pakistani hackers temporarily brought down several government portals, including that of the Army, and leaked 23,000 bank records in a bid to support the ongoing anti-government protests in the country.

The group calling themselves “Anonymous Op Pakistan” hacked over two dozen government websites overnight, a few of which remained inaccessible. Some of the hacked websites were defaced, the Dawn reported.

The group also leaked a zip file containing 23,000 bank records allegedly connected to the government. The zip file contained a document that stated the leak was carried out by ASOR Hack Team.
