The official website of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) which was hacked by a hacker named ‘SWE 2017-18’ on Wednesday night was restored on Thursday afternoon.
The authority has brought the site under control around 1pm, said Professor Jahirul Islam, director of the university computer center.
Necessary initiatives are underway to ensure security of the website, he said.
The university authorities in the morning noticed their website was hacked and later kept the server of the website down.
The hacker uploaded an image of chess pieces on the home page with the following message:
“Hey SUST! Build a Bunker, may be?/ You Are Not Secured Anymore.
I Once Took You DOWN.
Your Queen My Rook,
Let’s See Who Get To Hook!”
Earlier, the website was hacked in November 25, 2014 and August 26 in 2015
