Calling themselves’s ‘Kashmiri Cheetahs’, the group was responsible for the hacking of AIIMS Raipur’s website earlier this year.

The key reason why the attackers chose airport websites can be for extracting crucial information about flights, which can lead to compromising consequences.

More than that attackers can mine some sensitive and crucial information from Logistics to infrastructure and other valuable sources.

Our weak cyber security infrastructure has been criticized time and again by noted security experts from the country. India ranks among the top 10 countries, with a large number of cyber crimes, ranging from online harassment to fraud, and even spying.

Financial sectors are the prime targets of hackers, but they also targeting government websites to mine some sensitive and crucial information.

It is about time, India refocuses on setting up strict anti-hacking teams to counter these attacks or at least track them.

IT firm Nasscom had earlier said that India lacks cyber security personnel to the tune of 50,000, which is a significant number.

While this is not the first time hackers from across the border have attacked government websites, but this particular attack on airport websites should be taken seriously.
