A Pakistan-based hacking group identified as Revolution PK hacked the Youtube account of TIME8, the Digital News Channel in Assam, last week during a live stream and replaced the broadcast with the Pakistani flag, and ran ‘Respect Holy Prophet (PBUH)’ tickers on 9 June, reported Assamese media.

As reported by EastMojo, Time8News is a digital news network of Assam with more than 7 million followers on different social media platforms and an average monthly video views of over 600 million.

On 9 June, during a live news stream, the ticker of the live screen was also replaced with ‘Respect Holy Prophet (PBUH)’ text, highlighting the recent incident.

In a statement, Utpal Kanta, founder and managing editor of TIME8 Digital News Network, termed it an act of “cyber terrorism”.

“We condemn the incident in the strongest words and also express our concern over the matter, which relates to national security,” he said.
