Continuous attacks on Indians websites points towards the loopholes in Our Cyber Security Systems.A lot of work is required to develop better frameworks that can be termed as “Harmless” in nature & can’t be used to propagate these kind of messages by Pro Pakistani hackers.

After Analyzing various attacks & Their Causes

Education and Research Network of India,ERNET.in,manages the entire Domain to IP mapping of all ac.in websites.(Common Host) instead of the servers of these websites being hacked; the hackers simply attacked the DNS provider and mapped the domain to their custom server which then displayed the abusive messages and videos

We Would Like to Advice Delhi University : “Sharing a common hosting platform makes websites of DU colleges vulnerable to the attack.University officials should take care of this point and increase security so that things like this can be avoided in the future.”
