Ministry of Defence website hacked, action initiated

4/6/2018

New Delhi, In what could be called as a major cyber threat, the Ministry of Defence’s website on Friday appeared to be hacked. The website - https://mod.gov.in/ - was showing error, even as characters in Mandarin appeared on it. The home page of the website takes a long time and then leads to an error page. However, action has been initiated. In a tweet, the Ministry of Defence said, “Action is initiated after the hacking of MoD website ( mod.nic.in ). The website shall be restored shortly. Needless to say, every possible step required to prevent any such eventuality in the future will be taken. @DefenceMinIndia @PIB_India @PIBHindi.” Last year, the website of the Ministry of Home Affairs was also hacked. The MHA, however, denied any hacking, saying it was “down for repair”.
