Indian private school website hacked, Bangladesh flag posted: Report | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

According to a report by the news agency PTI, the website of a prominent private school in the Indian city of Noida, Uttar Pradesh was hacked by an unknown group identifying itself as “Muslim hackers from Bangladesh,” on Thursday (August 10). 

“When liberty is at risk, expect us,” read a line from a message visible on the website’s homepage, as quoted by the media report. It added, “We are Bangladeshi Muslim hacker’s never try to mess our cyberspace. We oppose oppression where we are, we represent freedom, we are simple evolimion of the technological system when liberty is at risk …expect us…”

The website showed the national flag of Bangladesh. The hackers signed off the message with “Joy Bangla” and “Bangladesh” written after it followed by multiple code names, said the PTI report. 

The group, which is said to be primarily driven by religious and political motives, has also attacked multiple sectors in India, the report said.

This also comes a month after a report by Check Point, an American-Israeli software company, revealed a sharp increase in cyberattacks targeting organisations worldwide, with Indian institutions suffering a disproportionately high number of attacks.

According to the report, between January and July of this year, a single Indian organisation endured an average of 2,146 cyber attacks per week. This number significantly surpasses the global average of 1,239 attacks per organisation.
