India and Pakistan conducting an online war

A rather speculative report concludes that Indian and Pakistan hackers are launching reciprocal attacks by hacking into websites of major organizations of each other countries.

In the latest incident, the website of the Andhra Pradesh CID website was hacked by a Pakistani hackers group in retaliation to a hack of the Pakistan's Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority's (OGRA) website by a group of Indian hackers. The Pakistani group posted abusive messages directed at their Indian rivals on the CID web site.

If this news report is true then it appears jingoism 'virtually' has no limits.
