After Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif purported audios leaked, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry has raised questions over the cyber security situation in the country and has claimed that that PM House’s data has been put on sale on the dark web.
Taking to his Twitter handle, the PTI leader said, “It is a major failure of our intelligence agencies, especially the Intelligence Bureau (IB).”
“Besides political matters, important discussion on security and foreign affairs are in their hands,” he added.
8GB of hacked leaks from PMO
On the other hand, while rising questions over the security of the PM Office, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Finance Minister Taimur Khan Jhagra said: “8GB of hacked leaks from PMO. Regardless of who is speaking, this Orwellian culture of recordings is disgusting.”The minister asked, “Who is accountable for the security of this data?”
It should be noted that, in a shocking incident, an audio clip purportedly of a meeting at PM House featuring several government officials has leaked online, it emerged Sunday, calling into question the security of PM House.
A day earlier, a leaked audio had gone viral on social media — allegedly featuring Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif — containing a discussion regarding PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz asking for a power plant from India to be imported for her son-in-law.
The leaked audio clip has rung alarm bells and raised serious questions about the security of PM House. It is also being said that there are secret recording systems installed at PM House which even government representatives are unaware of. However, PML-N members and federal ministers are reluctant to speak on the matter.
What is dark web?
The dark web is the hidden collective of internet sites only accessible by a specialized web browser. It is used for keeping internet activity anonymous and private, which can be helpful in both legal and illegal applications. While some use it to evade government censorship, it has also been known to be utilized for highly illegal activity.
