|A 17-year-old student was arrested in Sri Lanka for hacking into President’s official website. The student posted a message on the website urging to postpone the exams. He was taken into custody under computer crimes laws. Attorneys revealed that the student faces a fine of about $2,000 and up to 3 years in jail on conviction. The teenager had removed the home page and replaced it with a call to delay ongoing Advanced Level examinations.
The police explained that they traced the hack to the boy’s home in a town about 60 miles east of the capital, Colombo. In result of the attack, the website was crippled over the weekend. On Monday, it was up and running again. In the meantime, security experts admit that Sri Lankan websites had been hacked in the past, but never before has a teenager been arrested under computer crimes laws.

|if a 17 year old can hack the presidents web site , he should be given a job and the person who was responsable for the site should be sacked !!|
obviously , the kid has talent that should be put to good use and not not be punished for finding a flaw .
|Yes ! true indeed ,|

|Your wish granted. He was offered a great Job by government (to handle security about that very same site!), and many other jobs by private firms...|

|Here's the correction for everyone, the penetration for the website was done not alone by the teen, but also with the intervention of a "Bangladesh" hacking team. A good perpetrator always knows how to hide his/her tracks.|
Cheers, peace and out!
