Cinepax Cinemas’ website temporarily hacked


The website of Cinepax, which runs a countrywide chain of cinemas in Pakistan was supposedly hacked today.

Instead of its usual homepage, the website loaded with a white screen that had the text, “Cinepax Cinema Got HacKed By Team Pak Cyber Attackers”.

The hacker left a further message on the page: “Secure [your] server” and “Respect Us or Expect Us”.

Other details of this event are unknown as yet.

According to Cinepax General Manager Mohsin Yaseen, the website’s server has been compromised and is being restored.

Cinepax has screens in Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Gujrat, Murree and Hyderabad, with more screens in planning for Faisalabad, Multan and Islamabad.
