Mallu Cyber Soldiers came into being a few years ago when a Pakistani pro-separatist group hacked actor Mohanlal's official blog.
Now, after KRK’s disparaging Twitter tirade against Mohanlal, the cyber warriors are back in action. Apparently, the tech geeks’ group have already warned KRK to delete his tweets or face repercussions.
The cyber warriors took to their Facebook group and posted thus, along with a photo of Mohanlal: “After the tweet made by KRK against our Lalettan, Mallu Cyber Soldiers admin panel called for an immediate meeting to go for a cyber attack against KRK... some of the best hackers and cyber experts from different parts of state soon joined with us and started to dig out his information and discovered his private email address. After a few hours, we were able to break into one of his email through which we got access to KRK's Twitter and Facebook recover email. When we informed KRK that his email has been compromised, he didn’t reply but removed his first post against Lalettan in a few minutes. We also provided proof of our login.
"However, we have decided to launch a cyber attack on one of his main income source - his adsense account... Mr KRK, forget your ad earnings, we are now going to shut down your Google ad revenue account.''
In October 2014, when Mohanlal's official page, The Complete Actor, was hacked, the Mallu Cyber Soldiers retaliated by breaking into several official Pakistani websites like National University of Modern Languages, Lahore campus (NUML) and Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO).
Of late, certain self-proclaimed cyber activists have been on the radar of investigating agencies for 'retaliatory' hacking of websites and for 'instigating' wrong passions.
In September 2015, a Pakistan-based group had reportedly broken into the websites of the Kerala government. In response, an anonymous Indian group hacked scores of official Pakistani websites. They also 'warned' pro-Pakistan hackers to 'stay clear of Indian cyberspace.' In a similar fashion, the Indian hackers had also launched 'retaliatory' strikes on pakistan.gov.pk,president.gov.pk and cabinet.gov.pk.
