Already Pakistani hackers are trying out a dry run against Indian networks through popular websites registered there after the Mumbai terror strikes, Home Ministry sources said in New Delhi on Tuesday.
"Every time the relations between the two countries dampen, Pakistanis start attacking Indian computer networks and this has increased after the Mumbai terror attacks," a Home Ministry source said.
Pakistani hackers have created websites such as the www.songs.pk, which are infested with software to hack data from the targeted computers, it said.
"The website www.songs.pk has over 12 lakh Indian users who are downloading stuff from these websites daily," said a cyber expert in the Ministry.
With these websites being highly popular, it will take only a few minutes for the hackers to take command of over 12 lakh computers in few minutes and the number of such computers can multiply in every minute, sources said.
"Instead of the existing less harmful virus, new ones such as Botnet and Zoombie can be easily released into the Indian computers, which later on replicate and make the entire server vulnerable," the expert said.
"Nowadays new virus and worms are detected while downloading songs from these websites, which could be just a dry run to manage a bigger attack," he said.
Government websites have been highly vulnerable to hacking and they have been intruded many times by the Pakistani hackers.
"Most of the time, these cases are not reported as the server is based in Pakistan and we cannot do anything in this regard," the expert said.
The anti-virus software, too, cannot work in such situation as the virus used in such cyber wars are usually new and the anti-virus software cannot identity and detect it, he said.
"If anti-virus software cannot identify the signature of the virus coming through Internet, it will not detect it and as a result the virus will be downloaded in the computer in spite of such software available in the network," the expert added.

Looks like Our congress fgovt is cooperating with pakisatan ,when you find something likethis India govt should put a stop to these websites and file a case in united nations etc.
I have created a Facebook Group to spread this awareness. please join and invite all your friends to join and spread the words. Searh for the group "Stop using Songs.pk. They are funding terrorist !" in facebook
this is the stupidest joke .. a country reputed to provide IT services all over the world is not capable of taking care of itself ..
you guys are jokes - why don't you publish it widely enuf so people who log onto songs.pk are told that they will be liable for their actions
Why do Indians have to access Paki's site. I believe any indian downloading, viewing or surfing Pak's website is not an Indian but a Pakistani
this is really a serious issue. people need to be more and more aware of such informations, especially teenagers, cz they dont believe in such thigs, and the after effects. hope this news reaches each and everyone
This is most bogus information. The source of information is also unverified. I doubt this is a practical joke, not a serious threat.

Dear Indian Brother Please dont create panic be calm try to find out our common enemy be united as the west are Hindustan and Pakistan Zindabad it is extremely sorry to say that nobody in Ind or Pak is trying to put water on fire.
ISI and Pak Military are the common enemies of both India and Pakistan. Let us all work together to destroy these two "diseases" and only then can we hope for peace and unity between the two countries. Jai Hind !!
OUR IT INTELLECTUALS ARE MOST CAPABLE OF BUILDING " COMPUTER SHIELDS " TO PROTECT OUR USERS AND ALSO OUR SOFTWARE INDUSTRY FROM THIS KIND OF HIDDEN WAR ON OUR SOFTWARE ECONOMY WHICH WILL BECOME VULNERABLE IF SUITABLE ACTION TO COUNTER THIS THREAT IS NOT TAKEN IN TIME.I FEEL TIME HAS COME THAT WE SHOULD PROTECT EVERYTHING WHICH CAN BE ATTACKED BY NEIGHBOURS TO HURT OUR ECONOMY .
Where is Ankit Fadia? This is right up his alley, if he can crack crypto for a classified U.S. intelligence agency, why isn't he working on this NOW? I expect there to be no more cybercrime in India if Ankit Fadia is hard at work on it!
Dude check weather he knows to hack.... as i know he only know to wirte a book rather than hacking .....
I don't think Ankit Fadia knows how to hack or write a book, copy and paste yes. If he copy and pasted six books on brain surgery, I wonder if any of the writers that publish Fadia's press releases word for word would let them perform surgery on them?
Indian IT guys are far more deadly. Rope them to do carpet bombing on the sites which attempt to inject virus.
Why can't all Indian ISPs block these sites permanently. Pass a Law. So no one can argue. There are many good and safe indian sites for songs.
so does this mean that the country with this many intelectuals and IT giants cannot help to maintain a secure web spce for its people, or even guard its own govt resources. Why aree we spending the biggest portion to defense and millions to other R
our govt it sluths are only capable to crack the laptop of some sadhvi and a serving lt col. they are nor authorised to do the same to any muslim terrorist as the upa govt policy is to promote the muslim terrorism and pakistani occupation of our land.
