The official website of India's ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) was hacked on Tuesday, according to social media users.
Screenshots of the BJP's homepage doing rounds on social media showed an unflattering meme featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel.
BJP's official website is under DDoS attack.
The social media user mentioned above said the website was under a DDoS attack.
A denial-of-service (DoS) attack is a cyber-attack in which the hacker seeks to make a machine or network resource unavailable to users by temporarily or indefinitely disrupting the services. A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) is when multiple systems flood the resources of the targetted system with traffic that can lead to disrupting the services.
No hacker group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
Screenshots of the BJP's homepage doing rounds on social media showed an unflattering meme featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel.
A caption above the meme was mentioned in abusive language, which said that they have fooled us.
Below the meme was a music video of Bohemian Rhapsody.
An official response from the party is awaited. Access to the site remains restricted.
“We’ll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment. we’ll be back online shortly!” read a message on the home screen from the admin.
