This Algerian hackers” group was in the news in 2010 when they hacked the website of Belvoir Castle inLeicestershire, UK, after confusing it with the website of Belovire fortress in Israel.After the attack, the homepage of the castle of the 11th duke of Rutland showed a black page displaying the Algerian flag andArabic text.

Additional commissioner Isha Kalia said, “It was a tender document that was corrupted. The site has not been hacked. The alleged documents have been removed. There is no threat to the website now.”

It experts however, declared it was a partial hacking. An IT expert dealing with some computerization projects for the municipal corporation said, “It is a case of partial hacking. Some hacking group tried to access the official website of the municipal corporation and have posted the files in important updates. In any case, it”s not possible that a corrupted file will show the hacking statement.”

Another IT expert, Ishan Bhatia, said, “A corrupted file shows the statement, “your file is corrupted. Could not be opened.” But in this case, the window clearly shows someone tried to hack the official website of the Ludhiana municipal corporation. I checked at my level when I got the news.”
