NEW DELHI: Anti-India elements in Pakistan are planning an attack on Indian computer networks after the Mumbai terror attacks; the Press Trust of India (PTI) quoted Indian intelligence agencies as saying on Tuesday.

It cited sources in the Indian Home Ministry as saying that Pakistani hackers were trying out a dry run against Indian networks through popular websites registered there after the Mumbai attacks.

“The website www.Songs.Pk has over 1.2 million Indian users who are downloading stuff from these websites daily,” said a cyber expert in the ministry.

The sources told PTI that it would take a few minutes for hackers to take control over all 1.2 million computers and the number of such computers was multiplying by the minute.
