Pakistan cyber hackers ‘hack’ Cochin Port website

KOCHI, January 24 (PTI): Cyber hackers from Pakistan are alleged to have hacked the website of the Cochin Port Trust, investigations have revealed. The cyber wing of police found that the portal was hacked from a Pakistan Internet Protocol (IP) address. “We have handed over the log details to CBI Interpol Cyber wing,” Police Commissioner Manoj Abraham told PTI. Cochin Port Trust said the hackers left an anti- national message on the site.
A closer examination of the site also revealed that the hacker had left behind an alternate homepage and had not actually changed or edited the contents of the CPT website. The port filed a complaint with the police following which the cyber wing began its investigations. “Actions are being taken to restore the website with all possible security provisions and avoid recurrence of such incidents in future,” the port said. All the system logs have been forwarded to the Cyber Crime Cell under the Cochin City Police Commissioner. The attack has impacted only on the information display and sharing related to Cochin Port Trust and has in no way touched or impacted the usage of the Integrated Enterprise Resource Planning solution (christened the ePort).
