    "As the incident is being investigated, it is too early to comment. We are taking measures to protect our web sites and other platforms like Facebook from such cyber attacks," the official said.

    Denying any security breach of the space agency's website (www.isro.gov.in) and its content, the official asserted that there was no damage to its home page or micro-sites of its other centres located across the country.

    "Barring home page, other pages of Antrix website are safe and no damage done. Web sites of other centres are also secured and safe."

    Antrix officials were shocked to find on its home page an unsigned news item in English on "about 300 kids from Cape Town getting American Major League jerseys at cheap prices in China".
