When it comes to hacking, even politicians are not spared. On April 8, a hacker broke into two websites belonging to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. Passwords were illegally changed using the password email recovery account and tweaked the DNS to redirect visitors to a college website.

When officials noticed this suspicious activity, they filed an FIR, stating “officials found that amethi.net website is not accessible” and a case was registered under 66 Information Technology Act.
“The unknown hacker has cracked all of our domain management console passwords using password recovery email account amethi@hotmail.com and has made changes in DNS zone files so that it got redirected into some other websites,” the FIR said.
“Technically, the hacker has cracked the whole domain system of the server and used an email to get the passwords,” a senior officer who is part of the investigation said.
The official website, amethi.net redirected to pdmce.ac.in, the website of an engineering college in Bahadurgarh, Haryana.
The Delhi Police is now investigating into the attack.
