CERT-IN Indian Govt. websites DDOS’d by Anonymous Indian Hackers
Anonymous has attacked and brought down the website run by CERT-IN, the country’s premier agency dealing with cyber security contingencies to protest against alleged incidents of internet censorship in India. The group has planned street protests in 16 cities later in the evening. In Delhi the protests will be held at Jantar Mantar.
“We will keep attacking http://cert-in.org.in and http://india.gov.in ! #GOI, ready to face ups and downs?” the hackers said using Twitter account @opindia_revenge. They are apparently using distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack to overwhelm the servers on which the Cert India website is hosted.
The Anonymous India is aided by Anonymous UK that tweeted: “#TangoDown http://cert-in.org.in #OpIndia want it down all day xD.”
There are so many good reasons for Anonymous group to ddos or hack these websites. Recently, ISP’s like Reliance, Airtel had blocked world’s top ranking sites like pastebin, hulkshare etc.
