Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

The military coup in Pakistan has spread to the Internet. Only a few days after the Pakistan military deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, the home page of the regional government of the Punjab has apparently been hacked by someone calling themselves the Islamic group of hackers (Al-Sooraj wing). According to reports on BBC Online, the Punjab site now hosts declarations of support for the new military government. The site also levels a series of insults at Sharif, calling him brainless and hairless. Two qualities which many world leaders have had to rely on as their stock in trade. The BBC report said all other official Pakistan Web sites have been taken down. The BBC also claims to have been inundated with emails from Pakistani nationals pledging support for the coup. ®
