The Indian cyber-attacks aimed at hacking the mobile devices and other equipment used by the officials of the Pakistani government and defence and officials were foiled by the security agencies of Pakistan.
According to the statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the spy agencies of the neighbouring country India were behind an attempt to launch several cyber-attacks in Pakistan.
“We have improved our cybersecurity after the recent attempt made by India was foiled,” the media wing of Pakistan Armed Forces said adding that it came to notice of the security agencies of Pakistan after they carried out a probe into the targets of the Indian cyber-attacks.
The statement further added that all institutions of the government of Pakistan have also been directed to improve the cybersecurity to avoid such attempts by the neighbouring country in future.
It is pertinent to mention here that Kaspersky Lab, a multinational cybersecurity and anti-virus provider, has ranked Pakistan as one of the most unprotected countries with regard to the cybersecurity.
On the other hand, a report published by another Russia-based cybersecurity and anti-virus provider also said that the internet consumers in Pakistan were greatly unprotected. The report further added that the situation in several other countries including, Bangladesh, Iran, China and India was comparatively far worse.
