‘Cyber Soldiers’ from Kerala unleash 'surgical strikes' on Pakistan cyberspace

A day after news of hacking of Thiruvananthapuram airport's website by a Pakistani group of hackers yesterday, reports suggest that an Indian group of programmers from Kerala – the 'Mallu Cyber Soldiers' – have retaliated in kind by hacking the website of a Pakistani airport.

Significantly, the Kerala group not only hacked the site but also invited others to log in and "nail the site".

The online battle started from the moment when the Thiruvananthapuram airport’s website was hacked by a group which claims to be from Pakistan.

However, thirty minutes after it was hacked, the website was found to be restored to its original form.

Following was the message posted by the alleged Pakistani hacker group:
