What happened: On Tuesday evening, a government website (https://sindhinvestment.gos.pk/) belonging to the investment department of the government of Sindh was hacked by Anonymous hackers as a result of a cyber-attack.
Hacked By Anonymous. This is a warning message to Pakistan Government,” screams the message when you opens https://sindhinvestment.gos.pk/
“Student Lives are no joke! Shut the Schools down now. Students are the real assets of a country, don’t destroy your assets,” read the message by the hacker.
“Save Students ! Save Pakistan!”
Possible reason: Sindh Education Minister, Saeed Ghani earlier in the day had ruled out the possibility of an early winter vacation this year owing to virus upsurge.
The provincial minister said that students have already been given more holidays than usual this year and therefore winter vacations would lead to further loss of education. A final decision on the matter would however be taken during the meeting of the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) later this month.
