The Pakistan government's official website has been hit by Indian hackers, seemingly as part of a cyber turf war between rival cracker groups.
According to a report by SecurityFocus the Yaha.E worm was used to conduct a denial-of-service attack on the Pakistani website.
The worm created a text file on the victims' computers claiming that it was the work of 'sNAkeeYes,c0Bra'.
Indian hackers and virus writers were exhorted to "c0me & w0Rk wITh uS" against "tHE GFORCE-pAK shites", a reference to a rival Pakistani hacker group known as G-Force Pakistan.
The worm made repeated connection attempts to the Pakistan government's website and was carried in an infected email attachment.
It is designed to send itself to all email addresses in the victim's Windows Address Book, MSN Messenger List, Yahoo Pager list and ICQ list.
The last high-profile worm to include a denial-of-service component was Code Red. It was designed to flood the White House site using infected servers running Microsoft's IIS software.
The MessageLabs virus information service currently rates Yaha.E as the second most prevalent virus after Klez.H.
