The AIFF website carried a message from a cyber group alleging to belong to Pakistan from about 6.45 PM to 9.00 PM on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. Before the AIFF finally realised what was happening and took down the message, social media users managed to screengrab the 'threat'.

The AIFF too shared an apology for the outage and played it down to 'a technical glitch.'

Sorry for the inconveniences faced by you due to a technical glitch on https://t.co/7ahsAqfW77 . Please stay tuned, we'll come back shortly.

As of now, the AIFF website was still not up and the homepage pointed to an internal directory of webpages on the site.
