The website of Cinepax, which runs a countrywide chain of cinemas in Pakistan, appears to have been hacked today.

Instead of its usual homepage, the website loads with a white screen that declares "CinePax Cinema Got HacKed By Team Pak Cyber Attackers". A "Faisal_1337" left his postscript on the hacked page.
