GForce militants deface Lawyer website

The Lawyer website was taken over on Tuesday morning (1 August) by Kashmiri militants GForce Pakistan.

In an internet defacement campaign that also affected consumer site levismusic.com, governmental website NauticalCharts.gov and interdata.net among others, The Lawyer site was replaced by propaganda accusing the Indian government of lying about the situation in the disputed territory. This came the day after more than 100 people were killed in Kashmir.

Publishing director of The Lawyer Rachel Lesiter says: “Security on our website is of paramount importance and we have implemented new security measures to try and ensure this never happens again.”
