Turkish hacker 'cocks a snoop' on Pakistani counterparts to prove 'world's best' credentials
The Turkish hacker, who had recently breached into Google Pakistan's webpage along with 284 other .pk domains, has now claimed to have accessed the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) and the Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) servers, according to a report.
The hacking now potentially allows Eboz, the hacker, to acquire personal data of millions of Pakistanis.
Eboz, aged between 17 to 21 years, is targeting Pakistani websites to demonstrate his hacking skills to Pakistani
counterparts, and made his claims during a recent interview, The Express Tribune reports
"Pakistani hackers are claiming to be [the] 'world's best hackers'," he said, particularly mentioning Pakistani hackers
zombie_ksa and script-kiddie, who, he said, have hacked Google a few times.
"I do this to show them they are not [the] only ones hacking big targets on the planet. I also gained access to NADRA
and FIA Pakistan, NADRA which holds information on every citizen in Pakistan, and [the] FIA which has every
record of crime in Pakistan, [it is a] pretty good compilation," Eboz added.
According to the paper, Eboz had hacked the servers of PKNIC, the internet registry that manages top level domains
for Pakistan on November 24, thereby defacing google.com.pk and hundreds of other websites with similar domains.
NADRA stores all the personal information of every Pakistani citizen, while the FIA database contains confidential
information that, if leaked, could pose a threat to national security, the paper said.
However, when contacted, an FIA official said their data was secure and their website protected, while NADRA
issuing a statement said that such claims of hackers were baseless and its core products and services were intact and
enough security controls were implemented to safeguard citizens' data, the paper added.
