We worried for decades about WMDs – Weapons of Mass Destruction.
       Now it is time to worry about a new kind of WMDs – Weapons of Mass Disruption.

                                                                                                                ~ John Mariotti

Website hacking has become inevitable. It is now not a matter of “if”, but a question of “when”. Hacking is now a fact of life [ on the cyber highway! ] The mindless mirth of these crackers [ hackers hack, crackers disrupt! ] can very well be compared to the senseless bursting of crackers in the compound of a hospital. Or any other such activities which has become the bane of our modern life.

So we were not that surprised when our beloved fell prey to one such random attack.

hacked hacked on 18 February 2014

Thanks to one of our students, it was brought to our attention within five minutes. We took immediate steps to restore the site, and in less than 3 minutes we were back online. The security measures that we have in place ensured that none of the data was compromised. We use the fantastic content management framework, WordPress and some awesome plugins that are maintained by a team of exceptional open source coders, who believe in the Free Software movement.

You may find it interesting to read the below articles:
Google under siege!
Gmail accounts in Iran hacked, says Google
Google Malaysia hacked by Pakistani team
Google Malaysia search engine page hacked will continue in its mission to provide quality assistance to all the ISC Computer Science students of India. In very near future we will be launching a variety of interesting study materials that will make Computer Science all the more fun and informative! This incident of website cracking by some faceless entity may “disrupt” us [ like a flat tyre of a car ] but the journey will continue.

May the source be with you!

Best of Luck!
