This post is dedicated to the Editor and Reporter of Deccan Chronicle

Dear Madam thanks a lot for giving us good coverage in your esteemed news paper and encouraging our “Indian Cyber Army members” to stand by this country when ever cyber security challenges are biggest concern.

It was quite shocking when I came to know some Kislay Chaudhary called your office and questioned our integrity, No one can say that “Indian Cyber Army” is not belong to us, Even I also can’t declare that ICA is only mine because this title is been possessed by many people of this country.. Indian Cyber Army is the group of Hackers or individual from different parts of India, who care for Nation! I believe, anyone can use the name ICA, who is interested to work for Indian’s Cyber Space. Yeah, may be the way of working will be different but the aim is same. Here on our site everyone is openly invited to join us, either he/she is from India or any other country. We are “Indian Cyber Army”, that means we love Indians first and we are here for our country..

In the recent past there were people claiming for the name Indian Cyber Army. Actually this title is belongs to Indishell group and rest all are third party or they may possess this name but they are no one to stop others by using the same. Since so many months, Kislay Chaudhary and his group had tussle with Indian Hackers and they are none other than Indishell guys. Indian Cyber Army is a group of Hackers, Penetration Testers, developers, Security Experts, Programmers, and Cyber Geeks, cyber security experts, and even defacers. To deface and express their disagreement over certain patriotic issues they have been using this name and there is nothing wrong. For them Hacking is a weapon for Cyber War, they even believe in using Hacking skills for Security and Development. Without your knowledge they have secured many such Indian websites.

I have cyber security as business, but they are doing it without any commercial gains. They are not against any Country, Community, and Group. Indian Cyber Army is the open platform for everyone to come and join! They are against just against antinational elements. So what is wrong in it?

They are the members from different countries and Religions, groups. I think this is the best example of Team work where everyone is dedicatedly having concentration mission..They too don’t believe in cyber war and working underground. They believe in giving it back when some casualty comes to this nation as terror or threat. And I am sure they don’t need to prove us!

The Purpose of Indian Cyber Army is to provide security to cyber space of this country and safe guard nation’s interest. Thousands of young aspiring hackers are getting trained by them; they are the huge group with utmost integrity. Real Hackers should know to deface a website or who can root venerable servers if needed. Lucky, silent poison Atul Dwivedi I am sure these guys are good at code programs, find vulnerabilities, can write exploits and can test the every possible way to hack or secure a system.

The meaning of ICA is that, a step taken by an Indian for securing the cyber world and taking stand with best of the best persons of Cyber Field. Here ICA is not mean to only a group of 10-15 members, Even in actual, Indian Cyber Army should include every that person who is interested to be the part of National Security.

Now even we also possess the trade mark of Indian cyber Army, we have magazine titled Indian cyber Army, and even society and company registrations formalities are under progress. No one can stop us using this name or no one has right to stop anyone using this name. Not even kislay Chaudhary.

If Kislay has any issues over this title, then he can go legal and fight the battle, and that he cannot do, because he has nothing to claim. more over we also posses ICA website that is Trade mark registration can be done under any class by any one, with the same name. That does not mean the one who got trade mark; possess every right over the name or banner. Mr. Kislay chaudhary stop using cheap traits and back stabbing others. If you have any issues come across the table or go to court let judiciary take call over this subject. Stop phoning, threatening, warning and accusing people over false issues.

Sorry Manu Bharat for the inconvenience caused due to misunderstandings and unwanted claims.

Indian Government web-sites need attention

The Hacker collective Anonymous joined the fight against Indian corruption by hacking the site of the Indian government IT website NIC, the National Informatics Center. Ostensibly the hack was a retaliation for the government’s violence against Indian activist Baba Ramdev, who had been staging a hunger strike to protest government corruption, which the government recently disbanded with violent force. The hack, which the group claims took just three minutes, displayed the above message on the site. NIC quickly moved to take the page offline, but a cached Google page confirmed the direct hit by Anonymous. The hack comes just days after Anonymous hacked the government database of Iran, exposing private emails from that country. While no data was stolen or exposed from this latest hack in India, Anonymous’ message was clear: the corruption of institutional forces runs against individual freedom.

A statement by Anonymous said, “Over fifty years ago, Indian Freedom Fighters laid down their lives for our freedom. In the end, what was it all for? Today our politicians ride slip-shod over our laws, corruption is rampant. If the brutal way Baba Ramdev’s hunger strike was crushed is anything to go by, it would seem that India is now on its way to becoming an undemocratic ‘democracy’.”
This is something really worth giving a thought, why all of sudden ANONYMUS has to voice for Indian issues, give a thought, you hackers may realize the fact and reason behind it.

In the past, we have witnessed many of our websites being hacked including India's Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), colleges, NGOs, Indian companies and religious organisations among others by Pakistani Hackers. And, in the recent past, ONGC website too was hacked by them. And now, there are many chances that they would target SAIL (Steel Authority of India) website as it has many vulnerabilities and can be easily hacked.

The unfortunate part is that in spite of being warned by Kaizen India Info – Sec Solutions Pvt. Ltd (A cyber security firm that is working towards making our country free from cyber threats) about the loopholes to SAIL authorities, no necessary actions have been taken so far. Similarly, Kaizen had also informed higher authorities of ONGC about the vulnerabilities in their website but they too did not pay heed to the warning and ultimately landed up getting hacked by Pakistani hackers. Sadly, whenever a website gets hacked, fingers are always pointed towards the hackers but the fact is that the website owners themselves are responsible for not taking proper care and leaving their websites open with all the loopholes inviting hackers to attack.

A tit-for-tat campaign has been in practice by groups on both Indian and Pakistani sides dating back to the late 1990s when tensions over the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir brought the nuclear-armed neighbours to the brink of war.

In 2009, India’s one of the biggest banks Bank of Baroda, a global bank with a network of branches in India, and an international presence in 21 countries was hacked by Pakistani hacker group called Pakbugs.

“Indians place little or no value on the kind of data individuals and organisations in many countries prefer to keep confidential, like passport and bank account details or work contracts,” Cyber Expert Vijay Mukhi said.
"Privacy is a concept not rooted in India culture. I don't think we can change that and I don't think it's going to change in my lifetime," he added.
"The government doesn't care" about protecting information online. Corporates for some reason just don't want to spend the money. They don't think it happens often. Web security is a low priority," he said.

Very recently, the website of Sony BMG has been hacked and an anonymous poster has uploaded a user database to, including the usernames, real names and email addresses of users registered on This kind of company websites getting hacked not only affects the company itself but also the customers. Interestingly, many of the companies are insured and thus they get their losses recovered leaving the customers to suffer.

The question that arises is who will take action against these attacks? Government has been maintaining silence even though one after the other their websites are been attacked and details are been leaked or deleted. Is our government so weak? Now, after CBI, ONGC, Bank of Baroda and many other official websites, SAIL can be the next target. Hope that the SAIL authorities are listening and would take necessary steps towards protecting their website

freedom at the moment - An0nymous

By Kai Farmer

Most of the Hackers are aware of anonymous group and their motives. Anonymous' main focus is freedom at the moment and they fight for censorship around the globe and help there is new hacking group support anonymous called LULZSEC, short for lulzsecurity, their logo is a combination of a "rage face" and the monopoly guy.

"Consider fun is now restricted to friday, where we lookforward to the weekend, weekend, we have now taken it upon ourselves to spread fun, fun, fun, throughout the entire calender year" you can find this msg on their site. PBS, Sony, Fox Websites Hacked By LulzSec's group as the source say.

The series of Sony hacks, and reported to be the largest in Internet history, caused the Japanese icon to shut down its PlayStation servers for a month. sony was not only hacked by lulzsec but many other groups unrelated to anonymous and lulzsec. LulzSec explains their motive was to expose Sony as being irresponsible and negligent in their handling of user information and network security.

Sony operations were carried out by anonymous for Ddosing but the hacks behind the sony was done by Lulzsec group. and many of the credential info were exposed by lulzsec press release on the link

The lulzsec group gained recent fame by hacking into PBS website and posting a report that legendry rapper "Tupac shakur is alive and well in Newzealand"

In the past weeks LulzSec hacked PBS - because of the public television giant's frontline programs on wikileaks and private Bradley Manning. It is unfortunate that PBS was vulnerable to SQL attack and even worse that so many passwords were stored in clear text.Statement released after the hack of PBS from LulzSec in retribution for Frontline Wikileaks episode

"Greetings, Internets. We just finished watching WikiSecrets and were less than impressed. We decided to sail our Lulz Boat over to the PBS servers for further... perusing. As you should know by now, not even that fancy-ass fortress from the third shitty Pirates of the Caribbean movie (first one was better!) can withhold our barrage of chaos and lulz. Anyway, unnecessary sequels aside... wait, actually: second and third Matrix movies sucked too! Anyway, say hello to the insides of the PBS servers, folks. They best watch where they're sailing next time."

LulzSec: Laughing at ur security since 2011

Not only PBS, lulzsec had also hacked and defaced the website of the Atlanta chapter of InfraGard(org affiliated to FBI) after NATO and President Barack Obama had raised the stakes with regard to hacking, by treating it as an act of war. LulzSec claims 2 have obtained about 180 logins from the hack of the Infra Gard Atlanta website, and all of them were affiliated to the FBI in some way and the hackers released a statement, documenting how they carried out the operation.
