As we greatly value the trust you place in us, we think it fit to apprise you that over the last three months, the
Dawn Media Group has been under cyber attack. Multiple attempts have been made to hack and hijack our
official social media accounts and the accounts of our staff.
If such attempts were to succeed, the Dawn Media Group would lose control over what gets published and the
hacker(s) would acquire the dreadful power to post false, harmful and dangerous content to give an impression
to the reader that the offensive posts emanated from Dawn or with its acquiescence. Hackers and malicious
groups attempt to damage reputations and stir up virulent and negative campaigns to serve their agenda, and
Dawn has already been a target of such online campaigns in the past.
While we are continuing to fortify our digital security, you may draw some comfort knowing that Dawn would
never, under any conceivable circumstance, post or condone the posting of content, either on any website or its
social media accounts, that is in violation of the law and our code of ethics, particularly hate speech, and content
that is blasphemous, indecent, prohibited, illegal, or likely to arouse societal discord or disturb tranquility.
We hope you will stand with us in the fight against hackers who are bent upon spreading fear, hatred and disin-formation;
who through their actions, are attacking our shared commitment to the progress of Pakistan.
