Oops Bihar board result website failed again

Oops Bihar board result website failed again

Bihar education aka Bihar board examination results for 10 or matriculation were likely to be launched or uploaded today on website. Student’s waiting for their already delayed results are now feeling panic of finding there result. Our bihar examination board has done it again as of their process of providing contract for hosting result has already been questioned as of their capacity required for servers and the team to manage the traffic had failed all the time.

In very recent days when as per notification bihar board intermediate results were about to be published on the internet at their officially announced website http://www.biharboard.net/ crashed even before any body could have found there result on the website. Now lets do some analysis of the said website which crashed in fact it was suspended by the hosting provider.

Government release huge amount of money to host the result on website like above one, but you all will be amazed that the board itself or the agency who was about to host the result were using the very cheap shared hosting when there requirement was to look for VPS on cloud platform. You will put your nails between the teeth when amazing facts appeared when I investigated the story  about website http://www.biharboard.net/ the website hosting was bought from one of worst web hosting company in India as per my experience a company Called MANAS HOSTING. And perhaps you will cut your finger when you will know the server shared between different users and website was having 5000+ domains / website hosted on the same server at the time we investigated. At the moment this domain/web hosting account is been suspended due to heavy resource uses by company manas hosting.

After the discouraging news about the website intermediate result were re-published at new website http://www.biharboardresults.net/ the new website by the department or board. Students kept wondering for several days wasting their time and effort finding the website which was already under capacity again. Some how after long wait students were able to find the results.

The shame comes again now today as on 5th of the june matriculation exams were about to be launched on http://www.biharboardresults.net/  this website it has crashed again there technician now seems to switch hosting as they have changed the name servers for the domain few minutes ago. Students will now also have to wait for there 10th board results.

Shame on the department they should do tendering to find good companies out there to manage or handle big data and traffic. I have been managing more than 5 VPS servers to manage the load of our customers 500+ websites some with huge traffic as of Webx99.com is brand founded by me known for it’s promising web solutions including Cloud VPS cloud hosting . We are quite confident that government should short out these issues and

 

Education System in Bihar and it’s view about Information Technology

Education System in Bihar and it’s view about Information Technology

As a technology blogger among very few from bihar perhaps 😉 , I some how every day come to news related to the worst view on Information Technology by Bihar Educational institutions including government of Bihar. A recent story came to my knowledge when I got informed by my company staff that website of B.N. Mandal UNIVERSITY  is about to shutdown because authority didn’t respond to or react to the renewal reminder for their website www.bnmu.in .

BNMU Website NO MOREMy company staff told me that all the letters and e mailers already sent to university concern person/department with request to renew their website but no required attention provided by the university authority side.

There has been many stories in local news and online magazine about the down website incident . After the website of the university in no more exists these days students are unable to get any information related to exams, results and other academic details.

A local news portal of Madhepura district also published the stories:

मंडल यूनिवर्सिटी का वेबसाईट फिर हुआ खल्लास !

क्या मंडल विश्वविद्यालय का वेबसाईट आज हो जायेगा गायब ?

This is another shame on the dignity of the BNM University, as our company is getting too many calls regarding the status of website we have already mentioned everything that University had ignored all the CONSOLIDATED RENEWAL reminder and even they didn’t responded with any satisfactory conversation on renewing the site. Site can be renewed within 7 days by paying additional charges after that domain will go in redemption period when can be renewed with a heavy penalty.   God save our education system  in bihar wish a good luck for students doing road shows for results what a shame.

Security of many Bihar Govt. website is vulnerable too much

Security of many Bihar Govt. website is vulnerable too much

bihar-website-securityAs 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. Is your website Secured? ask me by dropping your email address for security audit of your website free for my blog readers.
