A few days earlier Techworm had brought the news of #OpAustralia when the Indonesian Hackers took out 170 Australian websites ending with .au domain.  Well today the Indonesian Hackers unleashed their wrath on the holy grail of them all.  The ASIS website was today taken down by them.   ASIS is short form of Australian Secret Intelligence Agency.   ASIS alongwith NSA has been blamed by the Indonesian Hacking community for the online snooping as per reports.  It is said to have been in active participation with the National Security Agency (the agency behind PRISM) of the United States of America to snoop on the the digital communication, emails, wiretaps in Indonesia. ASIS is the equivalent of the CIA, MI 5, ISI, RAW and FSB in the secret service parlance.

#OpAustralia again at work, Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) website hacked by Indonesian Hackers
 
The ASIS website is not opening even as I write this article and the Australian spymasters seem to be enjoying their sleep.  The Indonesian hackers took down the ASIS site on Monday afternoon IST.  It has been confirmed by Heru Sutadi, ED of Indonesia ICT Institute that ASIS has been subjected to a very successful “distributed denial of service” or DDoS attack.  The DDoS attack means that the Indonesian hackers sent millions of bots as traffic to the ASIS website which ultimately folded over and crashed.
 
No one has yet claimed responsibility for this DDoS attack at the very heart of the covert world of espionage but Mr Sutadi said the hackers, linked to the global cyber-activist network Anonymous, had first attacked the ASIS site on Friday evening.
 
Techworm has reasons to believe that Indonesian Hackers Group called Indonesian Security Down Team is behind this DDoS attack on ASIS website.  Techworm will bring you all the updates of the Indonesian hackings and #OpAustralia as it happens.

  1. I believe what you typed made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you typed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t want to tell
    you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that makes people want more?
    I mean #OpAustralia, Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) website brought down by Indonesian Hackers
    TechWorm is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to get people interested.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what
    you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
