Two govt websites come under cyber attack

The websites of two government entities have suffered a cyber attack this morning (30), says the Cyber Security Centre of Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF).

Accordingly, the official websites of the Ministry of Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils & Local Government and the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau (SLFEB) were hit by the cyber attack.

The homepages of the websites have been defaced by hackers.

Earlier this month, several Sri Lankan websites containing the domain name .lk and .com fell victim to a cyber-attack that targeted the war hero commemoration. The Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team (SLCERT) and the SLAF Cyber Security Centre subsequently took measures to rectify the situation.

The SLCERT had said cyber attacks targetting the war hero commemoration had taken place during the past few years.
