According to a media report, all the data on National Highways Authority of India’s (NHAI) servers was lost after last week’s ransomware attack.
There could be various reasons that lead to the breach. It is said that weak cybersecurity infrastructure, lax monitoring and outdated legacy software were some of them.
According NHAI officials, while there was a loss of data on the servers and a breach in the hardware, they had a backup loaded on the mail server.
Following this cyber attack, CERTin, which handles computer security emergencies, has started rigorous monitoring. Meanwhile, the investigation to ascertain from where the attack originated is still ongoing.
