Several key government websites were hacked late on Wednesday night. These included the websites of DRDO and five other government departments hacked. A site hosted by the advisor to the Prime Minister was also hacked.

Algeria-based hackers have been blamed for the hacking. The message pasted on the websites after they had been compromised read: 'SanFour25, Algerian Hackers' minutes after the hacking.

The biggest hack was on the site of the Recruitment and Assessment Centre operated by the DRDO that deals with the recruitment of scientists to the several laboratories of the DRDO. The website was down for over 9 hours.
