Gov sites attacked 200 times during CWG 2010


There were lot of cyber attacks made during the Commonwealth Games and they were mainly due to some of the wicked political activities. The researchers of DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organization) have revealed that the computer servers of the government departments were exposed to attacks for over 200 times during the Common Wealth Games that were conducted in 2010 at New Delhi.

DRDO works towards the research of newer technologies for combat and defence. Dr. V. K. Saraswat, the chief and scientific adviser to the Defence Minister revealed that there were many hacking attacks that were from various countries. He added that a special team with efficient and skilled members helped the DRDO to combat these attacks.

He did not stop without mentioning the fact that they managed to stop the online attacks although DRDO lacks the tools that are necessary for this. The organization is planning to work on a powerful encryption group that can create encryption techniques to fight against the attackers. It is also planning to craft some superior routers and servers with the operating systems to help to fight against cyber attackers.

There was increase in the hacks due to the increase in the digital content in the recent times. Last year accounted to several hacks and last month included the hacking of the Andhra Pradesh governemnt sites.
