The Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team | Coordination Centre (Sri Lanka CERT|CC) said they have been unable to proceed with the next phase in their investigations on the recent hacking of some 22 government websites, as a result of a delay in some documents due to be handed over by a web hosting company.
An official of the Sri Lanka CERT|CC speaking to Daily Mirror said, since the hosting company of the defaced government website (North Central provincial council - ncp.gov.lk) is based in the US, some of the documents they requested in order to probe into the hacking, has not been sent to them, yet. “So our investigations have been put on hold for now,” the official added.
Last week, some 22 subdomains of the North Central Provincial Council (nc.gov.lk) owned by the Sri Lanka government was defaced by an alleged group of Bangladeshi hackers, who call themselves the Bangladeshi Grey Hat Hackers (BGHH).(LP)
