Security of many Bihar Govt. website is vulnerable too much
As I am a IT geek & Cyber Security consultant I was testing few website’s related to bihar government to measure the security standards and loop holes left with their website. Shockingly I found many of websites related to bihar government and private companies were vulnerable against different types of very common network attacks.
Many of website’s that were developed using .net or asp technology are not even protected for very common SQL injection. SQL Injection is a method to by pass SQL statements and get access to login pages without any user name or passwords. So any person can just type SQL Injection go to Wikipedia website and find the method to get in to the admin area of these website’s database.
With the growing potential of hacking attempts these days and at the moment as companies and government agencies of bihar are not much aware or shows interest about the security of their websites and network it could cause disastrous & fatal issues in coming time.
Some of the website’s are so badly un-secured that the admin areas could be accessed guessing with most common passwords like admin , bihar, mybihar, ilovepatna, mypatna like ID and Passwords. Many of them are using so bad passwords that using Brute force attack one can get in to the emails, admin section of the websites.
However it’s known that IT companies are not using security measures in developing websites & applications also that Bihar has a lack of local Cyber Security Experts many of the websites related to bihar is on the mercy of a average skilled hacker. With the growing potential of hacking attempts these days and at the moment as companies and government agencies of bihar are not much aware or shows interest about the security of their websites and network it could cause disastrous & fatal issues in coming time.
In the same time my company Webx99 is continuously trying to provide creative, reliable, productive website solution to our clients of Patna, Bihar with the added security layers & penetration tests. We do all this with the latest technologies & the updated knowledge.
In the coming post I will publish an article about a very common attack and it’s result that shut down the website of a major project’s website of bihar government. Leaving you with the hope that Government & Companies of bihar will took further steps to secure their websites after revealing the issues.
