Last year it was independent media that said it was hacked. Today, it’s the turn of the Army website and Lankapuvath. The Daily Mirror website reports that both sites were hacked in the morning today. Defence.lk is up and running, but at the time of writing, Lankapuvath is down.
This is silly and c0unter-productive at best.
Hacking begets hacking, and if it is proved that this was done by pro-LTTE actors, it can lead to a vicious cycle of cyberwar that risks the very structures online that greatly assist in awareness raising of the urgent humanitarian needs of IDPs, ground conditions in the Vanni in Sri Lanka and how people can help IDPs.
