It looks like the heart of technical ashique who hacked the website of Jamia Millia Islamia University has been shattered. An unknown person or group hacked into the varsity's website at around midnight on Tuesday, the message displayed on the screen was - "Happy Birthday Pooja. Your love." Even as the authorities worked hard to restore the website by the morning, the Twitter had a field day with the news. The meme engine christened the unknown hacker as technical ashique.
But the ashique's heart was shattered a few hours later as the website was hacked again by 9 pm on Tuesday. This time the message said - “Sorry, I have a boyfriend. Pooja”. The website was later restored.
Incidentally, the Jamia website was once again struck around midnight on Wednesday. Only this time it was not a message for or from Pooja. The third strike created serious concerns as the displayed message was "Stuck by Faisal 1337", "Pakistan Zindabad", "Your Website Stamped By & Pak Cyber Attackers Team" and "Security is just an illusion". The website was restored minutes later.
After the first episode of hacking, the university officials said the issue would be taken seriously. "It is unfortunate that someone plays such pranks to send personalised messages. We would be taking this issue seriously. There would be a meeting and we will decide the future course of action," the varsity's media coordinator Saima Saeed told news agency PTI.
Jamia Millia Islamia's media coordinator said that the university received information about the hacking between 12 and 1 am on Monday night. "Our first response was to restore it and we managed to do it in six hours," she added. In the past, websites of many educational institutions were hacked, including IITs of Delhi, Madras, Bombay and Kharagpur, Delhi University and Aligarh Muslim University.
Here's how Twitter had its fun with the website hack:
