Hackers breach the Islamabad Safe City system and steal sensitive data

ISLAMABAD: Hackers have breached the Islamabad Safe City system, stealing sensitive data and significantly disrupting the city’s security infrastructure.

Reports indicate that the Islamabad Safe City Authority’s system was taken offline following the hacking incident, which occurred last Thursday. The attackers infiltrated the main server, accessing sensitive data and records, including the criminal database.

As part of the security protocols, the system’s servers were automatically shut down after the breach.

However, sources express concern over the lack of backup servers, which has crippled the entire system. This shutdown has rendered it inoperable, as all applications requiring server access have been disabled.

The disruption has severely impacted the Islamabad Police system, halting online services and making it difficult for police to file cases online. Operations at Islamabad police stations have been temporarily suspended.

Efforts are currently underway to restore the system, which could take up to two days.
