Sri Lankan President’s website defaced twice within two days

From the-kids-are-trying-get-your-attention dept., ANI reports:

Hackers tampered with Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena’s official website ‘www.president.gov.lk’ on two consecutive days.

The first attack occurred on Thursday evening, when hackers hijacked the site and posted a message in Sinhala, reports the Lanka Page.

The message, which was posted under the name “The Sri Lankan Youth,” made several demands to the government, including a call to reconsider the decision to hold the GCE A/Level examination in April instead of August.

It also called on the government to be more mindful about the security of Sri Lankan websites. Failure to do so could result in the country having to face a cyber war, the message further warned.

The other demands were to stop the “irresponsible conduct” of the Prime Minister and to be more attentive to the problems faced by university students.
