Hacktivists, calling themselves “Black Dragon Indian Hacker Online Squad,” vandalized the transportation site to even the score, after Pakistanis allegedly infiltrated Indian sites.

“Hello citizens of Pakistan, this site has been hacked. Years of injustice and misbehaviour and bloodshed from Kashmir in India by Paksitan [sic]. Big numbers of Indian websites including Government are being hacked by your cyber brothers,” one message on the compromised site stated.
