Three websites including that of the Health Ministry, Rajarata University of Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan Embassy in Beijing were reportedly hacked last morning by an organisation calling itself the ‘Tamil Eelam Cyber Force’, The Computer Emergency Readiness Team/Co-ordination Centre (CERT/CC) said. 

CERT/CC Information Security Engineer- Ravindu Meegasmulla told the Daily Mirror that the attack may have been launched considering the Victory Day of May 18, 2009.  


Following the cyber attacks, the Tamil Eelam Cyber ​​Force had hoisted the LTTE flag on the websites.  
Mr. Meegasmulla said the Health Ministry website had been restored and the restoration process of the remaining websites was under way.  


“CERT/CC had observed an increase in the number of website defacements during this particular period in the past years as well. Therefore, the CERT/CC had published an announcement requesting to be vigilant of the potential risk of Government Websites being intruded during this period,” he said.
