ISLAMABAD: Indian and Pakistani hackers are engaged in a round of 
tit-for-tat defacing of government-run websites of the two countries, 
targeting such major organisations as India's oil and gas major ONGC and 
its Pakistani counterpart OGRA.

The cyber warfare began in mid-November when an Indian group of hackers 
known as HMG or "Guards of Hindustan" defaced the website of Pakistan's 
Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority and deleted all its data.

The move created a buzz in cyberspace as HMG had earlier hacked a number 
of Pakistani communities on the social networking website Orkut.

Apparently acting in retaliation, a group calling itself the Pakistan 
Cyber Army (PCA) yesterday hacked five Indian websites, including those 
of ONGC, Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), Indian Railways and 
the Kendriya Vidyalaya in Ratlam.
