The Media Center for National Security (MCNS) website www.nationalsecurity.lk-still remains inaccessible although it has been more than five months since it came under a cyber-attack.
 
When about its restoration, MCNS Director Lakshman Hulugalle told Daily Mirror Online that they would “start the uplink when they want it”. However, he refused to reveal any information behind the delay or as to when the site was scheduled to become operational again. 
 
“It is an administrative matter and doesn’t need to be explained to the media,” Mr. Hulugalle said.
 
The MCNS was established specifically for the dissemination of all national security and defense-related information to the Media and the people through a single, coordinated centre.
 
The MCNS website was allegedly hacked on January 14 by a person who goes by the twitter handle, "@ThisIsGame0ver". The hacker had defaced the main page (nationalsecurity.lk) and leaked a compromised database that contained sensitive information including the admin username, password, MySQL username and password.
