The Cyber cell police are probing into the incident, which is suspected to have occurred last night.

State government’s official website ‘www.kerala.gov.in‘ has been hacked by Pakistan-based hackers and efforts were on a war footing to restore it, Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said.

Chennithala said that once Kerala police’s proposed ‘cyber dome facility’ becomes functional, state government will be able to take necessary precautionary measures.

“Such instances of hacking have taken place all over the world. Once the state police’s proposed cyber dome facility at Technopark here becomes functional, security auditing of all government websites will be carried out and we will be able to take all precautionary measures,” he said in a Facebook post.
