A group of pro-India hackers on Wednesday claimed responsibility for bringing down the website of the Canadian Armed Forces for two hours. Following a diplomatic winter between India and Canada, the group, which identifies itself as Indian Cyber Force, warned of launching cyber attacks on Canadian websites on September 21.
In the last few days, the group had temporarily taken down the websites of Canada’s election authority Elections and Democracy and an Ottawa-based public hospital. It allegedly stole the private financial data of thousands of Canadians and shared it on social media platform ‘X’ (formerly Twitter).
