The official website of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) telugudesam.org has been hacked on 26th May 2018 by someone namely Anonplus italia.
The anonymous hacker has left a message on the homepage of the Telugu Desam Party’s official website stating about the vulnerabilities in the website.
This group of anonymous hackers claims to only hack the website without stealing any sensitive information and their purpose of these hacks is to inform the website owners about the vulnerabilities in their website so that they can work on it and improve the security of the website.
The message left on the website was in Italian which indicates an Italian hacker or the group hackers were involved though it is the matter of investigation and the IP logs should be analysed carefully to find the actual location of the hacker.
The hack was reported on the Twitter by @nagarjun007. After hack the website stopped responding which is clear cut sign of website compromise. Though they have restored the homepage by replacing a content with a banner, but still the entire website needs to be restored.
