To hide their identity and the location from where they were operating, the hackers have used typical method of changing the spellings of their names with numerals.
While talking to Daily Times, central in-charge of the PPP Policy, Planning and Media said that the party’s two websites were hacked by unknown persons and the experts were working to restore them as soon as possible. He said that it was an act of snatching from people the right to get information about the party’s activities.
He said that his party’s candidate were being targeted by the extremists through bomb blasts and suicide attacks to keep them away from the elections, but they would fail in their aims at the end, as the PPP cannot be stopped through unfair means. kashif hussain
