ISLAMABAD - Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari come under organised cyber attack.

The Wikipedia pages of both the leaders came under organised attack when malicious details were repeatedly added on them.

Ultimately the Wikipedia pages were locked by the online encyclopedia after the pages were vandalised.

“Different IP addresses were adding libellous material repeatedly and simultaneously so it appears to be an organised attack. Following the abuse, entries on Chaudhry and Mazari were locked.

Some of the edits made to Chaudhry’s page were regarding Economic Advisory Council’s Atif Mian appointment and the recent controversy generated by a tweet from a PPP leader.

Users had planted libellous material on his page to incite hate and religious intolerance. The changes made to Mazari’s profile, however, included changing her name to “Shireen Mazari (aka Lady Taliban)” and changing her profile image to the villainous *Ursula* from *The Little Mermaid*.

According to Saqib, the vandalism began on September 4 as users changed Chaudhry’s religion, image and other details.
