Hacked website causes confusion

WASHINGTON- Confusion has been caused among Pakistanis here by a website www.pakgov.org which some believe to be the official Pakistan government website, and which was hacked more than two weeks but remains uncorrected on computer screens.

The website carries the heading “official terrorism website” and the hacker, who describes himself of herself as “patriotic Indian”, says this has been carried out to put down Pakistani IT professionals who claim that their security is impregnable.

The Pakistan embassy in Washington points out that the site concerned is not the official Pakistan government website, which is http://www.pakgov.pk, and that remains in tact.
