KARACHI: The government started securing the attacked websites on Tuesday, shortly after a group of hackers calling themselves the ‘Indian Cyber Army’ gained root access to a main server hosting important Pakistani government websites.
In an email sent to media outlets earlier, the hackers’ group claimed to have gained root access to the server hosting the websites.
Meanwhile, a report said the government’s experts claimed the cyber attack had been successfully thwarted.
The group managed to hack at least 36 out of the 40 websites which are reportedly being hosted on the hacked server.
The hackers had inserted a page on the websites declaring that they had successfully rooted the server. The websites had not been entirely defaced.
The hacking attempt appears to be associated with the Mumbai attacks.

Facebook admits privacy breach

| Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Facebook has admitted that some of its applications have been transmitting user information to advertising companies.
The admission comes after the US newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, uncovered that the company was violating its privacy policy.
The paper found that popular applications were providing access to Facebook members' names and, in some cases, their friends' names, to companies that build detailed databases on people in order to track them online.
Facebook says it will introduce new technology to contain the breach, and will disable any applications that violate its terms.
"In most cases, developers did not intend to pass this information, but did so because of the technical details of how browsers work," Facebook engineer Mike Vernal said in a blog post.
"We are talking with our key partners and the broader web community about possible solutions."
Mr Vernal argued that press reports had exaggerated the implications of the situation and that getting user identification (UID) information did not provide access to private data without express permission.
"Nevertheless, we are committed to ensuring that even the inadvertent passing of UIDs is prevented and all applications are in compliance with our policy," Mr Vernal said.
Facebook is the world's most popular social network with about 500 million users, but it has been dogged by complaints about privacy protection.
Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, told reporters at a forum in Dubai on Sunday that privacy was the company's top concern and it would continue to give people more controls.

Congressmen demand Facebook explain privacy breach

An apparent privacy breach by Facebook has attracted the attention of a couple of members of the US Congress.
A Democrat and Republican have written to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg asking him to explain what they call a "privacy breach".
Facebook has acknowledged some third-party applications on its site have passed on user identification information.
The US congressmen say given the number of Facebook users, these apparent breaches are a cause for concern.
They want to know how many users were affected, what information was transmitted to other parties and how many third-party applications were involved.
A spokesman for Facebook says the site is committed to safeguarding private data.
The letter to Facebook follows a Wall Street Journal report which said all of the 10 most popular Facebook applications were transmitting unique user ID numbers to outside companies.
Those applications include Zynga's FarmVille, with 59 million users, Texas HoldEm Poker and FrontierVille.
The information is being used to build detailed databases on people in order to track them online, the report said.

Microsoft: IE9 will never run on Windows XP

Microsoft has ruled out putting Internet Explorer 9 on Windows XP, leaving millions of PCs open to Mozilla and Google browsers providing hardware-accelerated rich-internet.
Ryan Gavin, senior director of IE business and marketing, said Microsoft would not put IE9 hardware acceleration features in the current version of its browser, IE8, or back port IE9 to older PCs running Windows XP.
Gavin, speaking to The Reg as Microsoft released the first IE9 beta Wednesday, told us - twice, in fact - that Microsoft would "continue to focus on how we do a great job with Windows 7."
Translated: the future is Windows 7, and there's no going back to Windows XP. Users will instead get a "great" web experience using IE8, he said. Windows XP users just won't get the "beauty of the web" experience dreamily promised by Microsoft with IE9.
Blocking a marriage between IE9 and Windows XP is Microsoft's decision to tie Windows 7 in to the browser via hardware acceleration, and though features like Jump Lists, which make the browser "invisible" and let web sites and apps run outside the browser directly on the Windows desktop.
Gavin, a man with a curious last name, told us: "A modern web needs a modern operating system."
Hardware acceleration comes courtesy of Direct X 10, a set of Windows APIs from Microsoft used to tap the PC's GPU processing to speed browsing and rendering of graphics and video. Direct X 10 was a major update to Direct X that does not run on Windows XP unless it's been modified.
This being the year of HTML5 hype, Microsoft is tying IE9 to HTML5 to differentiate it from IE8, Chrome, and Firefox, saying hardware acceleration provides web "experiences" not possible on the web of "yesterday".
"You don't want to differentiate on HTML5 - [as a coder] I want to be able to write this mark up once and it runs across all browsers," Gavin said. "You step on top of that and say how do I do HMTL5 right, and that's where hardware acceleration comes in for graphics, images and text."
As such, Microsoft is using HTML5 and IE9 hardware acceleration to cross promote and bring web surfers to its Bing search engine.
At Wednesday's launch event, Microsoft demonstrated Bing's trademark photo landing page running a video image built using the HTML5 video tag, and the ability to zoom in and out of a still landing-page photo.
Also, demonstrated was a preview of a search function that filters images, stores sets of images in a ribbon so you don't lose them when you click on one, and that provides gentle page fades when you press the browser's forward and back navigation buttons. The forward and back function drops AJAX in favor of CSS. Microsoft plans to release a preview of the new Bing graphics features designed to work with IE9 in a month.
Tying IE9 into Direct X 10, though, leaves millions of Windows PC open to Chrome and Firefox that also provide hardware acceleration – if slightly differently. Ahead of IE9's release, Windows XP accounts for 53 per cent of operating systems, compared to 22 per cent for Windows 7.
Chrome can target these PCs because it implements the widely adopted OpenGL graphics APIs for rendering, while Mozilla's Firefox uses an intermediate layer to talk to Direct X 10's predecessors DirectX 9, which does run on Windows XP, and to OpenGL.
Jump Lists are the other way Microsoft's preventing IE9 on Windows XP. Jump Lists were introduced in Windows 7 a year ago to provide quick access to documents and that worked with IE8 to list your frequently visited web sites.
Now, Jump Lists now let you pin an icon of favorite web sites to the Windows 7 dock at the bottom of the screen and also receive news updates from that site. It's now like a website running outside of the browser.

Hackers meet in 'geeks' paradise'

| Thursday, September 23, 2010
Laptop screens glow in the dim light as fingers flicker quickly over keyboards at Hackivity

Away from the elegance of Budapest's historic centre, a dingy rock venue has been turned into a geek's paradise. The laptop screens glow in the dim light as fingers flicker quickly over keyboards. Lines of code, incomprehensible to all but the cognoscenti, are typed out.

This is Hacktivity - an annual conference for hackers. They've come in their hundreds from all over eastern Europe and beyond. The organisers have set up two days of workshops, talks, and games so the hackers can hone their skills. In one game, the players have to race to break into a computer application designed to censor websites.

Illegal? Not here. The company that made the technology is actually here to oversee its vandalism. Cisco Systems, McAfee, Symantec ... some of the biggest names in computer security are at Hacktivity to court the hackers. Their branding is all over this event.

Quite why software companies should be flirting with the very people many would consider their enemies is explained to me by the tech security guru, Bruce Schneier. "Hackers are basically security experts" he tells me. "There are a lot of bright people here and the vendors want to be a part of that".

Essentially, the hackers are guys you want on your side if you have anything to do with computers. In the 21st century, with the cyber revolution in full swing, hackers have the knowledge and therefore the power too.

Most of them I spoke to here call themselves 'White Hat' hackers. That means they use their skills to expose flaws in software, and then point the weaknesses out to vendors so they can be fixed. Or, they work with companies strengthening their cyber defences against data theft, fraud, or sabotage.

On the dark side are the 'Black Hat' hackers. Their behaviour can range from the relatively harmless, like leaving mischievous calling cards embedded in networks they've infiltrated, to bringing down the financial and communications systems of whole governments. This actually happened in Estonia in 2007. The attack is believed to have come from Russia.

I ask Alexander Kornbrust, who runs Red Database Security, which side is winning. "They are" he says. "The attackers only have to find one way in, while the defenders have to protect all fronts." Alexander gives a lesson from history. "Even the strongest castle was eventually overrun."

So what does the future hold? Governments are waking up to the idea that hacking is going to play an important role in coming wars. Bruce Schneier says cyber warfare will never replace conventional warfare, a view advanced by the hacker Felix 'FX' Lindner too. But he says a cyber attack to shut down power grids, communications systems, and water supplies could well be used before an army invasion.

After finishing my television report for the channel and sending it back over the internet, I am approached by one of Hacktivity's organisers. He looks concerned. "I think you'd better ask Al Jazeera to put some new passwords in place," he says. "There are a lot of hackers round here."
