Indian hackers take down Bangladesh defence website
A Bangladesh government website under the Defence Ministry was attacked by hackers on Saturday morning. The official website of the Defence Finance Department www.cgdf.gov.bd was taken down by a hacker group claiming to be Indian. The group calling itself “TH3 S41NT” left a message on the homepage stating the obvious lapse in the websites’ security measures. Inter Services Public Relations Director Lt Col Rashidul Hasan told the Dhaka Tribune that the website was indeed hacked but it has been recovered since. “We addressed the issue immediately after discovering it. The site developers sprung into action and recovered the site around 4pm.” [caption id="attachment_60573" align="aligncenter" width="800"]The website after the recovery The website after the recovery[/caption]

The Bangla Tribune reports cyber security specialist Dr Touhid Bhuiyan saying: “Bangladeshi government websites are severely vulnerable to cyber attacks. The host domains are also not secure, leaving a lot of loopholes for hackers to breach our system. The websites should be frequently tested for vulnerabilities to prevent further attacks.” The website, designed on a Drupal platform, is one of the thousands of websites designed by Access to Information (A2i) as an upgrade to the former Joomla platform sites. Despite the upgrade, several Bangladeshi government websites often come under cyber attack, the most notorious being the Bangladesh Bank cyber heist in 2016. The hacker group “TH3 S41NT” on its Facebook page boasts its successful cyber attacks, mostly against Bangladeshi and Pakistani government websites.
