Sad, but it can happen to anyone. As they say, the only way to be 100% protected from hackers is to remove the internet cable from your server . Even the industry stalwarts - Google, Microsoft et all - have had their servers compromised at some point in time.

What matters is how quickly Fiat fixes this.

They perhaps misunderstood the phrase the term 'fiat cars are built like tanks' I don't see any reason why they would hack fiat-india website!

I doubt FIAT was the target. Looks like a generic defacing attack.

They use the same toolkit on literally thousands on websites that are related to India in any way. These toolkits rely on known exploits that have been uncovered in recent past.

Chances are quite a few of these sites would be running off-the-shelf packages like vbulletin, Drupal, wordpress, OS commerce et. el. And some of these sites, would be late in applying latest security patches.

It's a Sunday. Let FIAT sleep for ONE day! Please!
This just goes to show FIAT's attitude towards its operations in India. I don't think a Suzuki or a Hyundai website would have seen that message for more than a few seconds/minutes.

Cmon guys! It can happen to anyone. Dont read too much into it. FIAT guys will make it all right - if not today then tomorrow. Time and again these hacker groups hack into different websites. The site still shows the hacker's image. So the site has been hacked for a minimum of 10 hours now (the thread was created at 11.30 am today). Do not give these hackers too much publicity.

Come on Fiat India ,fix it up at the earliest. Wonder even if they have any idea about it. Its interesting that only a single update by the hacker . Once a loop hole is discovered , hackers try to post as much as they can.

May be the attitude of Fiat India that has prevented them from posting . I remember the days when i was handling Websites like Zdnet India and Thinkdigit. On an Average we used to have over a thousand attacks . Just lucky no one was able to get through.

well, website is already fixed . just checked.

Ps:- The guys were not aware IMO. called up at their customer care no to inform them of hack . has to explain them everything , to make them understand . thankfully , they have fixed it now.

I guess Mods should close this thread now as it;s not doing any value addition to forum.

The page reads something like this "Website Has Been Hacked By Pak Falcons And Pak Cyber Force For Raising The Voice Of Kashmir!!!"

Now what is the relationship between Fiat and Kashmir?

Are they planning to open a plant in Kashmir?

Ha ha ha! Had a good laugh at your comment. Though I pity FIAT at the same time. Nothing has been going right for them, since the begining of their second innings. But this could happen to anyone, so FIAT might not have been targetted hopefully !
