New Delhi: In an embarrassing incident, the official website of the All India Football Federation`s (AIFF) was hacked on Tuesday by an anonymous group called `Zero Cool`.
The hackers posted a message provoking India over Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian, Pakistan has accused of espionage and sabotage activities against it. The website had a picture of Jadhav, and said a country which did not know the difference between Snapchat and Snapdeal deserved Jadhav’s death and promised to send his dead body. It ended with a message, ‘This is payback to you Lammers.” Lammers is slang for people who know very little about computing.
Jadhav was awarded the death sentence by the country, which is now on hold following the intervention by the International Court of Justice.
The site was down soon after it was hacked and AIFF apologised through a message on Twitter which read, “Sorry for the inconveniences faced by you due to a technical glitch. Please stay tuned, we’ll come back shortly.”
The hackers posted messages against the India and its demand for the release of Kulbhushan Jadhav. The AIFF has not yet released a statement on this.
Jadhav was arrested in March last year in the restive Balochistan province and was accused of being a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent.
