Defence Ministry website hacked, displays Chinese characters
The website of the Ministry of Defence was reportedly hacked as it displayed Chinese characters. The hacking became a major embarrassment to the Ministry of Defence as an international exhibition on defence is being held from April 11, 2018, in Chennai, in which more than 600 companies are taking part from 80 countries. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has tweeted stating that appropriate action was initiated in the matter. But, the NIC has clarified that the official website of the Ministry of Defence was not hacked.
