On a day when India’s premier investigating agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is swamped with the investigation of major corruption cases, in a major embarrassment, its website has been hacked. People who logged on to the CBI’s official home page cbi.gov.in were redirected to a page which said this attempt was in response to Pakistani websites hacked by ‘Indian Cyber Army’.
“CBI is aware that its official website has beden hacked and defaced. An inquiry has been launched and necessary remedial measures are underway to restore it,” CBI PRO RK Gaur said.
In addition to the CBI website, the self-proclaimed Pakistan Cyber army claims to have hacked another 270 websites.
