Hackers Attempted to break into Andhra Pradesh Government Websites


Hyderabad:  Hackers attempted to break into different websites of Andhra Pradesh government departments
even as a security audit was being conducted at the State Data Centre maintained by Wipro.

“Hackers from Jakarta (Indonesia), Algeria and Turkey made repeated attempts to break into the government websites
at different times in the forenoon but they were not successful,” Information Technology and Communications Minister Ponnala Lakshmaiah said.

Last week, hackers broke into 27 websites of different AP government departments, including the budget portal,
and added additional pages without defacing the home pages.

It was suspected that the hackers could be from Bangladesh or Myanmar but no clear link could be established in this case so far.
