Indian Websites defacement figures UP

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Amid the recent mass SQL Injection hack and targeted attacks, the series of defacements on Indian websites have also increase from 612 in March 2008 from 214 in Feb. 2008. But this should not come as a surprise because the recent waves of attacks had a lot of websites kneeling.

The Recent DOS attack on CNN.com by Chinese hackers then comes the Mass SQL injection attack which even compromised Department of Home Land Security website and we have the lovely Hannaford breach.

While the number of defacements in India is quite small compared to the Global attack stats but it does show that how vulnerable Indian websites are, most of the website suffer some form of SQL Injection and even Cross site scripting works most of the time, there is a lot more to do than just patching the servers which they don't understand.
