The website TCS.com which belongs to India’s largest software vendor, Tata Consultancy Services, was hacked today by a French hacker. This hack will definitely lead to total embarrassment for the software firm who thrives on creating software and security systems day in and day out.
The homepage says:

The screenshot of the website, accessed from India, at 2:30PM today, is shown above. It is rumored that, the hackers have made changes to the DNS settings of the website. They have put up a whos.among.us widget displaying current traffic on the homepage!
Tata Consultancy Services Limited (TCS) is the top software services and consulting company in India and is the largest provider of information technology and business process outsourcing services in India. TCS is a subsidiary of one of India’s largest and oldest conglomerates, the Tata Group.
TCS is maintaining many of the government websites and this case points out the immaturity of TCS. Let us hope that, this will be an eye opener for major Indian software firms
In last couple of months many popular sites has hacked like twitter and Baidu was hacked in January from Irish hackers.
The hack is believed to be a DNS hijack, which is similar to the breach that Twitter succumbed to last year.
It is unbelievable that some hacker could easily hack into one of the most secure websites of the top technology company in India. Its a Sunday evening here in India and I wonder if someone at TCS is looking into it…
