WBGDRB launches new website after cyber attack by unknown hackers

Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], April 07th (ANI/PNN): The West Bengal Group D Recruitment Board (WBGDRB) has launched a new website http://www.wbpar.gov.in.gdrb.in/ after hackers carried out a successful cyberattack on the government server which hosted its original website http://www.wbpar.gov.in/ on Thursday.
The defacement came to light when the board received several complaints from the students and parents regarding the web page showing Forbidden error 520 and service unavailable on April 07th.
Secretary, WBGDRB said, "The WBGDRB's official government website has been hacked in a successful cyberattack by the hackers. Since April 07th, students and parents were unable to access our official website due to the cyber attack. However, the government has launched a new website www.wbpar.gov.in.gdrb.in/ to facilitate the students and parents for accessing vital information from the board.
Data security is becoming increasingly important, particularly for governments that are more exposed to cyber-attacks. And, in the aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak, security experts have warned that cyber-attacks will only become more prevalent.
WBGDRB Secretary added, "We are seeking expert advice for securing our new official website from further cyber-attacks. Still, the hackers are anonymous and they may have stolen the important data.
