A section of official Tata Motors website, with the url connect.tatamotors.com was recently hacked by Hasnain Haxor. The hacking group from Pakistan has been known for hacking many websites in the past few years, which includes secured sites like Pakistani Consulate in Jeddah and Indian Public Health Engineering Department.
The Tata Motors website in question showed the image above for a brief period of time after it was hacked. Once the word was spread, Tata Motors sprung into action and disabled the website. As of now, on visiting connect.tatamotors.com you can see the message – “The site is currently not accessible.”
The group is also known as Pakistan Haxor Crew, and they have an active Facebook page. They reportedly have hacked over 550 Indian websites till date. Their message they want to spread is – “Pakistan Haxors Crew is here to remind you of your security… Our fight is not against any individual but the system as a whole. Should you choose to ignore security, it will reincarnate as your worst nightmare! We just defaced your website to give you a chance to put your hands on it before others come and destroy it!”
This is not the first time Tata Motors website has been hacked. Back in Aug 2013 as well, their website was hacked. That time it was hacked by twitter handle ‘Phr0zenMyst’. The reason for hacking was because Tata Motors was manufacturing vehicles for Indian Army.
Tata Motors has not revealed anything officially on the development yet.
