An Algerian hacker called SanFour25 has managed to breach and deface a number of seven high-profile websites belonging to Indian government and law enforcement agencies.

The targets are the Recruitment and Assessment Centre site of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (rac.gov.in) and the one of the Advisor to the Prime Minister on Public Information, Infrastructure and Innovations (iii.gov.in).

Other affected sites are the Biotechnology Industry research Assistance Council (birapdt.nic.in), National Informatics Center - Diu Unit, (diu.gov.in), West Bengal police (policewb.gov.in), the Directorate of Estates of Ministry of Urban Development (gpra.nic.in) and the Rehabilitation Council of India (rciregistration.nic.in).

Experts told The Hindu that the hacker managed to gain access to the sites after breaching the server they were hosted on.

Although the hacker didn’t mention anything about stealing data, he could have easily gained access to the information stored on the server.
