ISLAMABAD – Against the backdrop of Independence Day celebrations in the country, Indian hackers infiltrated government websites, including the federal Cabinet, law and IT ministries, among others on Monday.

“Happy Independence Day-August 15” was the message left by hackers on the Cabinet’s official portal, referring to India’ Independence Day the next day.

They also added a photo of Indian army hoisting an Indian flag on the Siachen glacier.
A group identified as Lulzec India has claimed responsibility for the hack.
