Suspected Pakistani hackers have hacked the official website of the Kerala government, www.keralagov.in.
The hackers posted a picture of India’s National Flag burning on the website along with a message-“Struck By Faisal 1337. Official Website Government of Kerala Hacked! Pakistan Zindabad. We Are Team Pak Cyber Attacker Security is just an illusion”.
Cyber officials are trying to get the control of the website back. The cyber wing of the state police launched a probe into the hacking that occurred late Saturday night. As of now, the website shows an ‘under maintenance’ message.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told media at his hometown Kottayam on Sunday that the hacking was a “grave issue”.
P.H. Kurian, principal secretary for IT and Industries, said that officials are inspecting the website.
Three days ago, the website of Chennai Customs was also hacked in a similar manner. The hackers had posted the same image and message on the Chennai Customs website too. Officials are yet to restore it.
