Pakistani hacker group known as the Pakistan Cyber Army have allegedly hacked into the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) website. In the raid they have gained access to over 10,000 users' information, which include names, email addresses, phone numbers and location details. According to The Hacker News, along with the above information reports that the Pakistan Cyber Army also has acquired BSNL’s internal working of their VPN, details of their circuits and other technical details.

According to screenshots posted by the group, they say that they are independent and have no website, email or Facebook account. Along with that they post the word ‘BSNLOL.’ The images on The Hacker News show images of a BSNL page that shows user’s data along with their email addresses. Other screenshots reveal the telecom company’s VPN page. The reason for this hack is unknown, but in all likelihood it is just the group proving that these things can be done.
