The official website of Congress Party www.congress.org.in was hacked this morning, coinciding with the 65th birthday of Party President Sonia Gandhi. The opening page of the website was replete with pornographic content. The hacking of the website comes in wake of Kapil Sibal’s statement of making a crackdown on internet content, which is alleged to contain nude morphed pictures of Sonia Gandhi. The site has closed following detection of incursion.
“I have been informed that the website has been hacked,” said Tom Vadakkhan, spokesperson of Congress.
Even though sexual content replaced by the hacker displayed a Pakistani e-mail id, the veracity behind it has not been verified. The IT wing of Congress is investigating the matter. Earlier Kapil Sibal, the Minister for Communications came under the ire of netizens, with his statement calling for screening of internet content.
“We will evolve guidelines and mechanisms to deal with the issue,” Kapil Sibal said without issuing details of the steps that will be taken.
