The hackers group is demanding for the transparency of money collected for earthquake victims. They have also urged the government of nepal to properly address the federalism and discrimination in the name of cast, culture and others. They have warned that they are coming back as they say they are sleeping but not dead.

There has been several cases of hacking government sites in recent past. It is high time that government makes a good policy and enforces IT security to protect their service from being hacked. Hackers after gaining the access to the servers can alter the contents, delete the content or can do any malicious activities affecting wide range of IT service consumers. This is indeed a serious case that governments’ official sites are getting hacked while government is spending enormous money for establishing e-government system.
