I’ve been in the tech blogging space for some time now and throughout there’s been one blogger – based out of India – who has provided such utility, it’s utterly surprising to hear news that he has been targeted by malicious hackers.

Amit Agarwal, a tech columnist at WSJ India and founder of Labnol.org (a.k.a Digital Inspiration), a blog he launched January 2004, has revealed on Twitter that all his websites have been hacked by hackers and deleted.

Difficult times. Hackers have deleted all my websites.

Hacking popular websites is unfortunately common place (we learned the hard way) but to hack and completely delete is less so.

Sadly, Agarwal is no stranger to being hacked. In February 2011, a hacker managed to gain access to his Facebook profile and in turn, all his fan pages. In 2009, his Google Apps account was also hacked into, which lead to him penning a well read piece on how to protect yourself from Google account hackers.

Let’s hope Agarwal has backed up.
