Pakistan’s Quaid-i-Azam University Breached by Indian Hacker, Data Leaked

Pakistan’s Quaid-i-Azam University Breached by Indian Hacker, Data Leaked: The cyber battles between Indian and Pakistani hacktivists continue. In the latest round, an Indian hacker that uses the online moniker “Indian Assassin” breached the systems of the Quaid-i-Azam University in Islamabad, Pakistan.

The hacker has leaked the webmail usernames, email addresses and password hashes of around 100 of the university’s employees.

He highlights the fact that the hashes can be easily cracked since they’re encrypted using the MD5 algorithm.

“Don’t [expletive] with Indian websites Pakistan, come learn with your daddy,” the hacker wrote next to the leaked data.

As HackRead highlights, this isn’t the first time when the Quaid-i-Azam University is hacked. In mid-June, another hacker breached the educational institution’s systems.

At the time, database details, login information and the contact data of professors, assistant professors, associate professors and lecturers were published online.
