New Delhi: The students of IIT Madras received a rude shock on Thursday morning when they found the institute's website hacked and pro-Pakistan messages posted on it.

The website apparently was hacked by one 'Faisal 1337x', who put the photo of the famous joker from Batman movie "Dark Knight" in the garb of McDonald's mascot Ronald McDonald on its page. A message posted on the page read "Pakistan Zindabad" and "You don't know the power of Pakistan hackers".

"I came to know sometime in the morning from students that the site was hacked," IIT Madras spokesperson Venkatraman told IANS. "The site overall worked fine, except the hacked pages," he added. The pages were restored after some time, and started working as usual.
