* Hacker believes Sri Lankan government corrupted, targets government web sites
Fri, Feb 15, 2013, 10:03 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 15, Colombo: The hacker known as Davy Jones who hacked several government websites has said that he continues to target Sri Lankan government websites because he believes the government of Sri Lanka is corrupted.

The hacker has said that he is attacking Sri Lankan websites because he believes the country's government is corrupted.

Softpedia reported that the hacker's latest target was the official website of the Sri Lankan High Commission of Maldives (slhcmaldives.com).

According to Softpedia, the website's entire database, which includes administrator and user details, has been published online.

Davy Jones has previously hacked the high-profile sites of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority, the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka, the Nelum Pokuna Theatre, the website of Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage and several others.

A hacker by the name 'Game Over' hacked the Media Centre for National Security (MCNS) and defaced the website's main page on January 17.

However, the Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team - Coordination Centre (SLCERT-CC) said that they had received only few complaints of hacking from state institutions and their ability to look into them is limited unless the institutions requested an official investigation.

SLCERT-CC has said that many state institutions have requested assistance as a precautionary measure and they have taken steps to provide them with all assistance.
