Nepalese Government site Hacked by Iranian Black Hat Team

Nepalese government has always been disgrace towards it's people. They pass the budget and they don't put it to right use. They buy tons of computers and spend lots of country's money on it. And, they use it just for personal email and playing games during their "Raja ko Kaam , kahiley Jala Ghaam" time. They didn't put much concerns towards online security.

Yesterday, a very talented group(Wanter, Kinglet,$mart,!inf3rN.4Il,Echo) tagging themselves as Iranian BlackHat Team hacked www.nepalgov.gov.np. This group though very talented were fully motivated towards bad intentions, defacing every loophole websites they could find. Mostly big companies,government sites.

While defacing Nepalese Governmeent site, they put some message like this


Right now, may be some moron ministers and his cabinet members or office fellows must be amusing on this incident. For them, it must have been a good subject of gossip for whole day. damn them!!!

After sometime, all the contents wiped out and they put stuff like this. Fully owned by them!!!


And, now the site is totally nulled. Government must have no database at all(this shows how careless are they), most probably, else they would have already uploaded the content. Or, may be they have not yet regained the control from the hackers.

props to the government for screwing up so badly

Navin said...

anon, thanks for the referal. and yeah, i saw that video.

atomicfire, yeah.. it is indeed and i know how sluggish they are acting now,.. may be trying to hire some expert admin.. however sooner or later, something serious must have dawned on them. they should always be serious about online security. When i was in nepal, i know how easily they ditch the topics on technology and online security. World is keeping pace with this innovative new technology and they're just in the start struggling with how to regain control of their own space. damn them..

anyway, thank guys,
please keep posting your invaluable suggestions. let your voices be heard too..

Yeah its a shame. But anyways, its Nepal, security is not much a concern. Security on websites? what do you think?
Time for my opinion for the attack. You call them talented hackers, I call them f*cking lame idiots. All they did was change the index page and put their so-called 'elite' flag on the already backward country's site were IT is as low as low can get. The site(being a Nepal Government's property) probably used the oldest unpatched version of linux/apache/or_whatever_software_it_used whose exploits are freely found over the internet. And do you think the sysadmins(if they exist) care? Nonetheless IBH did that for their 15 minutes of fame?? NOW THAT IS LAME.
The statement 'Defacing a website is hacking' is as true as saying 'Hotwiring a car is engineering'. And hotwiring a Nepelese government owned vehicle that can hardly run on it's four wheels is f*cking lame.

And by the way, if anyone is interested you can still see the hacked content at google's cache
http://72.14.235.104/search?q=cache:XLWVpZ4UyGcJ:www.nepalgov.gov.np/+site:nepalgov.gov.np&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=np&client=firefox-a

Navin said...

binay! liked your comments. true hackers would never do that but there are other genre too. "BLACK HATS".. what do you say about em. These are geared not for short fame but for money. They hijack a site, and ask ransom to get the content back. I'm not sure about their intention but i've found not much but some info on them and they are real talented people from IRAN. They are not even script-kiddie or wannabe as you might think. but the only thing what riddles me most is why they do it? are they cyber terrorist? i dunno..

it's just like you can create bomb to kill people instead of blasting rocks and create a way. It's just a misuse of knowledge. and, defacing a website is of course a work of hacking, a different cult known as Black Hat . I'm not being sympathetic to em but it's just a way they are doing which disgusts me after all.

and you are right. must be too easy for them to hack our country's site. It's needless to write, they didn't mention it's name anywhere on their site. might have thought,"too easy, prey, useless to mention".

The second pics from my post is actually from the google's cache :)

thanks to google. once again.

Navin said...

Finally the site is up!!!

binay, one of the hacker from the group and his rampage:

Ashish said...

How does the digg effect feel like bro?

आकार said...

Anyway, it's a shocking events.के गर्ने यस्तै छ । and i think other site has been also hacked... i'm unable to see pages of blog.com.np for 3/4 days.... and frm today i've seen it.......
Nepal's All things have been hacked,(no security,no job, no petrol, no sim,yes sim-no service,no human rights, no CA election etccccccccc.........)so hacking of site is just a small incident.. isn't it????

Navin said...

merdurian, it's not like that. it's just they are showing they do exist and showing supremacy of their knowledge..creating havoc.. everywhere, not only ours country's site.

Ashish, digg effect is cool :)

Aakar, you are somewhat true bro.. with your descriptions, anarchy is imminent.

Navin said...

Yeah, they have their forum setup and forum is left totally unmoderated. So, most of the spammers are leaving links to porno sites and nobody is giving damn care to it :) I don't know how's the situation there now :)
