The website bsf.gov.in is not active and it has been under security audit from a month now, a BSF spokesperson told to the national news. It is discovered that the official website was hosting some malware infected files which are capable of sending fake emails claiming to be from Mumbai’s United Services Club. But the other official websites are functionally normal the other day. The Border Security Force is the primary border guarding force of India. It is one of the five Central Armed Police Forces of the Union of India.
This issue became public after MalwareHunterTeam, a team of security professionals tweeted about it after diagnosing the infected malware files on Friday. This is not the first time this group actively served but also when WannaCry Ransom ware hit the world previous year. Bryan Cambell, a UK-based security researcher also stated that the site bsf.gov.in had “numerous malware” and “multiple vulnerabilities.” Although the site is down for a while, it is available from the Google Cache results on Saturday.
