Just a couple of days away from their scheduled peace protests, across the country, popular hacktivist group, Anonymous are at it again and this time it is the official website of MTNL that is down. MTNL is a very popular ISP in the metros, primarily Mumbai and Delhi. While the Internet services are working fine, the main site (http://www.mtnl.net.in/) is down. The site acts as a gateway for a number of services for MTNL, which include bill payment and schemes on their services. Of course, the various sections of the site can be accessed by doing a simple Google search. As has been the case with previous hacking attacks, Anonymous hasn’t damaged any data on site, except for the main home page from the look of things. There’s no sign of the Anonymous message, which was found on previous hacking attacks in the past.

You're the fool then for thinking they've no idea who is actually blocking.

They're targeting all govt sites and several other sites involved in this censorship.

They won't attack irctc because they know it's crucial for the common public. They said this in a recent IRC interview which was published in TOI Crest I think.

frankly speaking taking down a bunch of government websites for a couple of hours or even days is not going to change anything. they could have done something nice. ensure that Copyright Labs website never stayed online hitting them where it hurts.
