The Government Information Agency (GINA) says that efforts have once again been made by unknown individuals to hack its website.
“The latest attempt was noticed today when material which did not emanate from GINA was reportedly received by some individuals via e-mail.
“Over the past few months many attempts have been made to hack the website. On one occasion, these attacks led to the website being inaccessible”, GINA said.
GINA says it views the efforts by the hackers as mischievous with intentions to bring the agency into disrepute.
“GINA will continue to make every effort to improve the security of the site and has lodged a formal complaint with the Commissioner of Police”, the release said.
In June last year the World’s leading Internet search engine and web data giant, Google, issued a security advisory urging Internet users not to access the Stabroek News website at stabroeknews.com.
