CID summons ITSSL Chairman over statement on govt. websites under cyber attack

The Criminal Investigation Division has summoned the Chairman of the Information Technology Society of Sri Lanka Yasith Kuruwita due to the statement released by the society alleging that many government websites have been subjected to a mass cyber attack.

Information Technology Society Sri Lanka (ITSSL) said that several other government websites, including the official website of the Presidential Secretariat, came under cyber attacks, earlier today.

However, cyber security experts denied that such a cyber crime had taken place as all the information that was initially in the website is still present.
