The Hush Post:  The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) website seems to have been hacked late on Monday night. When accessed, the homepage of the website www. upsc.gov.in/ showed a photo of Doraemon cartoon along with the caption: “Doraemon!!!! Pick up the call”. The page also showed “I.M. STEWPEED” at the bottom. also, the title track of the cartoon played in the background.

The incident came to light after some users shared screenshots of the website on Twitter around midnight.

The Doraemon message was not on display in the morning and the website is now showing the following message  “The website is under maintainance” . UPSC is yet to respond to the incident.
This is not the first time a government website has been infiltrated by hackers. The Supreme Court of India’s website was hacked in April this year allegedly by a Brazilian hack team.In 2017, a pro-Pakistan group hacked the websites of four top Indian institutes—Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), IIT Varanasi, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Delhi University (DU) and posted anti-India messages.
