The weeks starts with some disconcerting news for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as a French hacker claimed via Twitter that his website might have some security issues, leaving it vulnerable to hackers.
The hacker, who goes by the name Elliot Alderson on Twitter, has been constantly monitoring websites of the Indian government, and few private entities. His profile interestingly reads: “Worst nightmare of Oneplus, Wiko, UIDAI, Kimbho, Donald Daters and others.”
According to Alderson, PM Modi’s website was vulnerable enough to let anyone fully access its database. This, apparently was possible by opening the website in a staging subdomain.
