Lucknow: Unidentified miscreants hacked the website of Army Public School (APS), Nehru Road and started flashing objectionable messages, presenting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Jammu & Kashmir in bad light.
The IT supervisor of APS lodged a complaint with Cantonment police. The complainant alleged that websites of other branches of the APS have also been hacked.
Police said this could be the handiwork of cross-border miscreants. Website of APS, Parayagraj, was also hacked and an FIR was lodged.
The hacking was noticed around 10am on June 24.
“We immediately contacted CERT-in (the government’s nodal agency to deal with cyber security threats) and lodged a complaint. Thereafter, we informed our vendor who shut the website,” the supervisor said.
ACP Cantonment Archana Singh said the hosting website has been sought to share details to zero in on the accused. In early 2020, websites of APS across India were hacked by Pakistan-based hackers.
