* Sri Lanka's National Security website hacked, data leaked
Wed, Jan 16, 2013, 10:43 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 16, Colombo: The official website of Sri Lanka' Media Center for National Security (MCNS) has been hacked and defaced by a hacker, known as Game Over.

Hack Read, a platform that centers on hacking news, says the hacker has not only defaced the site at nationalsecurity.lk, but redirected it to another site and gained access to the server, taking away and leaking hundreds of login information of the site users.

Currently the defaced page has been removed and the visitors to the MCNS site see the message "We are currently performing site maintenance. We'll be back 100% in a bit."

Earlier this month a hacker collective called Bangladesh Grey Hat Hackers (BGHH) had targeted 22 sub-domain websites under one domain belonging to the North Central Provincial Council.
