Anonymous Hacker attacks Indian government over the file sharing ban


After the banning of some file sharing sites in India, Anonymous Hackers has turned its attention to it, taking down the web sites of the Supreme Court, the country’s two major political parties and several government sites in retaliation for a court injunction which led to the blocking of several video sharing and bit torrent sites.

Anonymous tweeted saying that it was now India’s time to bring in a new government.“Namaste #India, your time has come to trash the current government and install a new one. Good luck. | #SaveTPB #Anonymous #Censorship”.

The hacking was reportedly in response to the blocking of torrent site thepiratebay.com and vimeo.com.While the Supreme Court of India website came back online after a little while, the Congress website was still offline at the time of filing of this report.The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) website had also reportedly come under attack.

The group first signalled its intent to launch #OpIndia in a YouTube message posted over a week ago, which said the following:

We have come to the conclusion that the Indian government has failed. It is time that we all rise and stand against the corrupt government. The Department of Telecommunications has ordered Internet Service Providers to block file-sharing sites in India. We cannot let this happen.

In late March, Chennai-based Copyright labs won a restraining order that made Indian ISPs and phone firms stop their customers reaching sites that were illegally sharing copies of Bollywood films called 3 and Dhammu.

Some people can still access Vimeo and The Pirate Bay. It seems that the sites were initially blocked by Reliance, followed by Airtel. The users who faced the blocking got a message saying that this was due to a DOT regulation, but later the message said that it was because of a court order. The UN is expected to discuss the proposal in the next 72 hours. The proposal would end "equal say" process for internet governance and push the civil society to the fringes.The proposed Committee for Internet Related Polices (CIRP) would be 50-member body funded by the UN. It would meet once a year and would have the power to oversee all internet standards bodies etc.

To knock out the sites, Anonymous bombarded them with data, a tactic known as a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.The tactic had only partial success as most of the sites targeted soon recovered and were only offline intermittently.

Anonymous Tweet: "We are not doing any permanent damage to the websites. We just want file sharing sites to be unblocked."

That's it from TheHackerNews!
