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)

    Isn't it funny that one of the hacked web sites are hosted by a cheap re seller hosting company named Lanka Web Net Solutions. I wonder why this state department didn't consider a reliable hosting provider like SLT or Lanka Government Network...

    Dude SLT and LGN aren't safe either :). I have worked with them and i know their networks. We don't have a safe webhoster in SL

    Do not waste time. Eve if hacked there is no information of any use for anybody. Or could be the design of the space craft and rocket to send Sri Lankans to space. Or are we already in space.
