TRAI under DDoS attack after leaking email id’s of users who spoke against net neutrality

By April 27th, 2015 AT 4:18 PM

The ongoing battle for net neutrality has taken a new turn as a group that calls itself AnonOpsIndia on Twitter has hacked the TRAI website. the opindia_revenge handle has already warned almost an hour ago that it will be taking down the TRAI website and it seems that the group indeed did so. This move comes after TRAI had made public the contact details of all the people who had written a letter at  [email protected] for net neutrality support.

TRAI

The group has hacked the website by the most common method of inducing a DDoS- Denial of Distributed service attack. The TRAIs website is not loading from the past 30 minutes and it seems that the Government organisation was taken aback by this surprised attack.

The hackers further ridiculed TRAI at being to unable to manage their own servers and handle a DDoS attack.

 

Sad to see organisation like TRAI can take such a move.
