The website of an Indian management institute appears to have been compromised by a group of hackers from Pakistan. They have since posted derogatory remarks on the website’s homepage along with a flag of Pakistan.According to media reports, the website of the School of Law, Design and Innovation Academy of the Institute of Management Studies (IMS) were tainted with a Pakistani flag and other derogatory remarks.
The development was brought to the notice of college authorities after parents complained that they saw inappropriate content of the website. A first information report (FIR) has been filed (under IT Act) with the Centre for Cyber Crime Investigation by the authorities of the institute.
Though the police had informed that the websites would stay blocked until the perpetrators are identified, the homepage of the website seems to be working fine now. However, it came as blow to the college as admissions are going on currently and was expecting a merit list to be announced soon.
One interesting aspect, however, is the fact that the hackers were kind enough to leave a note to the website admins on how to revert the process.
The primary cause of the message was just a warning for Indian hackers, who have hacked numerous Pakistani websites in the past.
