Anonymous recently launched cyber attack on Indian government websites, claiming the hack was in response to government's crack-down on Baba Ramdev's fast. Anonymous hacked the website of National Informatics Centre (NIC INDIA) and posted their logo along with a message to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. and Facebook and Twitter deleted Anonymous. The hacker group was also involved in hacking the Indian Army website.
"When corruption, destruction and mayhem strikes from governments or corporations it is the goal of anonymous to awaken that entity and the public that a change must occur. As price pritchet once said, 'change always comes bearing gifts'. Anonymous is the gift we have been waiting for. Honest and trustworthy persons working hard on our behalf for the betterment of mankind." message posted by Anonymous said.
Anonymous also started the anti-corruption movement on Facebook in the name 'Operation India' and on Twitter as OperationIndia. But after hacking the Indian army website, users started to accuse the hacker group questioning the truthfulness of their motive.
In response to users demand, Facebook and Twitter deleted Anonymous' pages. Even though the Anonymous' demands to take strong and decisive measures to root-out corruption and stem the rot plaguing Indian politics seem to be reasonable, but their way of attack was not acceptable.
