Feb 04, Kathmandu- It has been found that the person who hacked the website of Examination Control Office, Balkhu (ECO) under Tribhuvan University is a student studying in Class 12.
The website which was hacked on Tuesday night was being redirected to a Facebook account named Rohit Rokaya. In such a case, there was a suspicion that someone had deliberately redirected the site to Rohit's account.
However, shortly after that, a post was uploaded from that account saying that the site had been hacked. It is written in the post, "Since TU has started online service since yesterday, it has also increased the attack surface on TU's website. This has added a security challenge to TU's website”.
The post reads, "Now TU will have to keep millions of documents from online system safe. Therefore, TU needs to give special importance to the security aspect when making any software".
It is also mentioned in the post that hacking is illegal and immoral. He also mentioned that he cannot provide any help or support for unethical activities.
After seeing such a post, many people expressed their suspicion that his account has been hacked. We contacted his father, who is working as a field assistant in Chaurahzari municipality in Rukum West.
Even now, the website of TU's convocation is being redirected to Rohit Rokaya's Facebook account. We were trying to contact her number. However, his phone did not pick up.
When we contacted the Capital College and Research Center (CCRC) to know more about the matter, college sources confirmed that he is their student.
(*The person involved in TU's website hack incident was found to be a minor, so his name and picture have been removed from the news.)
