The website of Gauhati University (www.gu.ac.in) was hacked for some hours on Friday by some unknown hackers.
The hackers even threatened to disclose every secret of the university if their demands are not fulfilled.
When someone opens the website, the homepage flashes the following message- “FAKE FREE ADMISSION? WOW! YOU GUYS REALLY LOVE TO GET HACKED! DON’T YOU?”
“KhanBaris. Ah s**t! Here we go again! RISING FROM THE ASHES!” the message further adds on.
Adding further it says, “Let’s talk about the matter? Straight to the point! What the f**k you guys are up to Guwahati University? Do you even know how much students are struggling for exam fees and admission?”
“Let us directly clue you guys (GU officials) in! This HACK is “NOT” for fun. We can get access to each and everything Guwahati University literally owns! You guys better watch your back,” the message adds further.
“Either GU should suppress their called exams fees and admission fees. OR GU should CANCEL EXAMS,” it added.
“STUDENTS! WE ARE FIGHTING FOR YOU! WE WANT hashtag #GUGOTREKT #OP_KHANBARIS trending on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook,” the message on the hacked homepage further read.
A YouTube video message is also shared at the end.
In the video, a youth lashes out at the GU authorities for asking students to take admission at a time when Guwahati is under 14-day lockdown.
“When most students don’t know internet banking and struggling to arrange a morsel of food, in such a situation how could the authorities even imagine of announcing admission,” the speaker in the video said.
By the time the news report was prepared, the GU authorities had brought down the site.
This is not the first time that someone has hacked the GU website as it was hacked a couple of times earlier as well.
