A French hacker has warned that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's website has been compromised and an "unauthorised" individual already has the portal's data.
In a tweet, the French hacker who describes himself as a security researcher sought to reach out to Narendra Modi's team asking them to get in touch if they wanted him to resolve the problem. Later, he claimed that Modi's team had contacted him over the issue.
Hi @narendramodi,— Elliot Alderson (@fs0c131y) January 14, 2019
A security issue has been detected on your website. An anonymous source uploaded a txt file containing my name on your websites in realtime. He also have a full access to your database. You should contact me in private and start a security audit ASAP!
A few hours after his tweet alerting Modi of the possible hack, he again tweeted to say that "contact has been done with their team… I had a nice chat with the narendramodi.in team. They will take the appropriate measures and solve the issue".
