Indian Hackers Attack Pakistani Government
According to Graham Cluley, the firm's senior technology consultant, Yaha-E is currently the second most `popular' virus after Klez. Sophos says that the worm attempts a denial-of-service attack on the home page of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, flooding the site with user requests, overwhelming the server and locking out visitors.
The anti-virus firm says that Yaha-E creates a file on infected computers spurring cybercriminals to attack Pakistan. Comsats Internet Services, who host the web site, said that the worm represents a distributed denial-of-service attack that is becoming worse as the worm spreads via users' email attachments.
