The official website of the Karnataka police department (www.ksp.gov.in) was on Friday allegedly hacked by Pakistani hackers, who pasted a Pakistani flag on the home page.

“Our cyber security engineers, however, restored the web site after removing the tampered home page and rectifying the glitch within minutes after detecting the hacking,” a police official said on the condition of anonymity.

The hacker, claiming to be Faisal 1337 from Team Pak Cyberattacker, posted a Pakistani flag on the home page with a message below it, which read “Pwned! Hacked, shame on your security!”

“An inquiry has been ordered into hacking and investigation is underway to track the IP address of the hackers, who claimed to be operating from Pakistan,” the official added.
