Cyber criminals managed to break into the Andhra Pradesh Government servers and hacked the website which gives details of the budget. The hacker added an additional page on the site with URL – http://budget.ap.gov.in/Dz.htm.
This is one of the twenty one websites of Andhra Pradesh government that have been hacked on Thursday exposing severe chinks in the cyber security.
The hacked websites belonged to major government departments such as Gazette notifications, government orders, commercial taxes, GAD, horticulture, factories, remote and interior area development, etc.
The hackers did not deface the home pages of these different departmental websites but added additional pages with their messages indicating cyber intruders were not radical hackers who would steal the information or do other mischief, but those who just wanted to prove their capabilities.
The hackers identified themselves as !-Bb0yH4cK3r_Dz-! and Hmei7.
