Over the past couple of weeks, Pakistani hacktivists groups have targeted a large number of websites from India. Now, another series of high-profile attacks have been announced.

Members of The Hackers Army have defaced the homepage of the official website of India’s State Bank of Patiala, The News Informer reported. This financial institution’s site has been defaced numerous times over the past period.

Hackers of Team Maximizers have also been busy today. They’ve defaced a couple of subdomains of the state of Kerala (kerala.gov.in).

The Pakistan Haxors Crew has targeted the West Bengal State Coastal Zone Management Authority (wbsczma.gov.in) and a portal of the Damodar Valley Corporation (dvc.gov.in). In the case of the West Bengal State Coastal Zone Management Authority, the hacktivists also claim to have obtained the website’s database.

At the time of writing, most of these websites are still defaced.
