BOLLYWOOD: On Monday morning, Poonam Pandey woke up to the shock of her life when her team informed her that her website had been hacked.
The vandalism would not have been so worrisome had the hackers not left pro-Pakistan messages on her hacked website. The slogans which had been overnight plastered on her website included , ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Rise(sic.) a voice for justice of (sic) Kashmir.’
Poonam feels these messages are from militants.
Says the actress, “I’ve never been afraid of being attacked. For the first time in my life I am scared. The hackers seem to be terrorists. I don’t know how to deal with that.”
She has reported the virtual transgression to her the cyber-crime cell. But Poonam wonders if that is enough. “This time the attack is from a source I can’t handle. These people sound like militants and they’ve taken over my website. My team is working on an early restoration . But the damage is done.And I wonder if I am safe.What if they attack me next?”
