A website hacker, known as Davy Jones, who hacked several Sri Lankan government websites in the recent past said ‘he is attacking Sri Lankan websites because he believes the country’s government is corrupted,’ the softpedia.com said.

It also said that the official website of the Sri Lankan High Commission of Maldives (slhcmaldives.com) has been breached by the hacker Davy Jones.
“The website’s entire database, which includes administrator and user details, has been published online,” it said.

This isn’t the first time when Davy Jones targets high-profile websites from Sri Lanka. Over the past weeks, he has breached the sites of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority, the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka, the website of the country’s Minister of Sports, and others.

At the end of January, Sri Lanka’s National Computer Emergency Readiness Team’s Coordination Center (CERT|CC) revealed that it was concerned about these attacks, but the CERT’s representatives said their ability to look into them was limited as long as the government did not officially request an investigation.

    Once caught and convicted his fingures should be cut off. Any other things dangling should be considered if he is a rapist.

    loging to the Cpanel and typing Admin, Admin does not make you a hacker :P all our gov site are with that default user settings, and if you wanted to have the data so badly you could have asked the IT Guys of that respective ministry or department it will cost you a bribe of 500 to 1000 LKR.

    Those in power are least concerned about the hacking of state web-sites. Their only concern is to stay in power and amass wealth. Let the country go to dogs, which it has more or less.

    kish Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:14 AM

    Mr. Hacker, we know that even without hacking...

    dava Saturday, 16 February 2013 11:11 AM
