Apex court website down amidst fears of hacking
New Delhi: The official website of the Supreme Court was suspected to have been hacked on Thursday morning, but the court officials did not confirm it.
The top court officials confirmed that the website had become "non-functional" from 11.35 am and said all efforts were being made to restore normalcy.
One of the screen shots of the top court web page circulating on some social media sites showed signs left by some Brazilian hackers who may have targeted it. An image of cannabis leaves, with a message saying "hackeado por HighTech Brazil HacTeam", could be seen.
Later in the day, when attempts to reach the website at supremecourtofindia.nic.in was made, the result read: "site under maintenance".
