A number of 22 subdomains of the North Central Provincial Council (nc.gov.lk) owned by the Sri Lanka government have been defaced by Bangladeshi Grey Hat Hackers (BGHH).

The affected subdomains represent the sites of the Public Service Commission, the Department of Sports, the Department of Agriculture, the Ministry of Health and many others.

“Some so-called hacker from Sri-Lanka challenged us that their country’s gov sites are too secured and unbreachable. We defaced the 22 gov sites to show them and to prove them ‘No system is secured from us.’ We also urge the government of Sri-Lanka to increase the security of their sites,” the hackers said in a statement.

BGHH also defaced the site of Joomla India (joomla.in), a company that provides web design and web development services. It’s worth noting that the firm, Joomla India, is not affiliated in any way with Open Source Matters or the Joomla! Project.

At the time of writing, all the affected websites had been restored. (Source: Softpedia)

    I think I know that so called Sri Lankan hacker. This guy doesn't know anything about hacking but pretends to know everything. Once this guy said he has created a super duper web browser.

    NA Thursday, 03 January 2013 08:26 PM

    Raja Raju Thursday, 03 January 2013 03:45 PM

    Don't try to look at these sites as they may send virus to your PC which is called as "iframe virus".

    Ahhh... Kids... (Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi)

    mamath Thursday, 03 January 2013 04:06 PM

    some of the govt sites have the street address & phone numbers. I think we have nothing to worry

    HardBall Thursday, 03 January 2013 04:06 PM

    Nothing much to be hacked in they site anyway. Do we have any technological secrets?

    Noble Service Friday, 04 January 2013 12:53 AM

    It shows the quality and importance of our government websites. Quality is utterly poor with loads of facebook photos of the minister. Importance is zero as it doesn't convey anything useful.Hats off to the hackers.

    Fusion Thursday, 03 January 2013 04:13 PM

    Unbreachable? Who ever claimed that is a really ignorant clown. "illan kanawa kiyanne oka thamai". Off-course for the Govt there is a silver-lining. Now at least they know these vulnerabilities exists.

    Game Pappa Thursday, 03 January 2013 04:45 PM

    Well done Bodu bBla Sena.

    TDKR Friday, 04 January 2013 06:45 AM

    Bunch of newbies trying to prove themselves. real hackers do not hack and boast about it. and let alone hack without a proper cause or reason.

    RamUK Friday, 04 January 2013 02:16 AM

    iframe viruses cannot affect your PC. It will only affect the websites.

    Managala Thursday, 03 January 2013 05:37 PM

    Most of the sites are just bunch of pages.Nothing to secure there even no user databases....

    dna Friday, 04 January 2013 07:25 AM
