The official website of Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Mass Media and Information (media.gov.lk) has been defaced by a Pakistani hacker using the online moniker H4x0r HuSsY, Cyber News reports.
The hack appears to come in response to the executions
of Tamil people by the Sri Lankan army at the end of the civil war.
“We Pakistanis are with Everyone! All We Want Is Justice! Justice Everywhere!,” the hacker wrote on the defaced site.
At press time, the site of the Ministry of Mass Media and Information was working normally.
Several websites owned by the Sri Lankan government have been breached over the past couple of months.
On February 19, the same Pakistani hacker defaced
the sites of the Inventors Commission, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, and the Ministry of Child Development and Women's Affairs.
