The Hindu : Sci-Tech : Over 8,000 cyber attacks on CWG ticketing system: Shivshankar Menon

There were over 8,000 cyber attacks on the Commonwealth Games’ ticketing and scoring systems in October last year but these were repelled, National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon said here Thursday while underlining the need to strengthen cyber security.

“There were 8,000 attacks on the ticketing, timing and scoring systems and we managed to tackle them all,” Mr. Menon said at the Prem Bhatia Memorial Lecture here.

Mr. Menon was responding to a question on how India was preparing for the cyber warfare as its websites and networks were frequently under attacks from hackers, including the Chinese.
