BHUBANESWAR: The website of Banki Autonomous College (www.bankicollege.org) was hacked for some minutes allegedly by a group of suspected Pakistani cyber attackers on Saturday.
The hackers, who identified themselves as 'Patriots of Pakistan' defaced the website by posting a message on Kashmir and the surgical strikes. The hackers accused Indians of killing innocent people in Kashmir and violating the ceasefire by launching surgical strikes.
They also posted a threat to launch a cyber war on the hacked web page. Principal of the college Babaji Satpathy said the website was restored by its developer within 30 minutes and a police complaint will be filed in this regard. "We will seek police help to find out if the hackers were actually from Pakistan or it was an act of mischief," he said. The principal added that there has been no damage or data loss in the website.
Apparently, this is not the first time that the website of an educational institution has been hacked. Earlier this year, the website of Utkal University was hacked twice by hackers who identified themselves as 'Team Pak Cyber Attackers' from Pakistan. Subsequently, the e-admission website of the university was also hacked. A case was then filed with the cyber cell of the Crime Branch.
Prior to that, an engineering student had hacked the Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT) website.
