I would like to ask users/WebAdmins/DBAs/Network Admins to keep their web software and other related softwares  up-to-date, no matter if it is a pain to do, because you could be the next in line to get hacked for using software which has vulnerabilities.


Thanks and Regards,
Vikas K. Saxena.

It seems like it was a DNS-related hack. No deep technical details available but seems like the website was defaced for some time and then possibly taken down to diagnose and rectify the flaw.

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 softwarefirm who thrives on creating software and security systems day in and day out.

If you visit TCS.com right now you will be greeted with a screen which looks similar to the screenshot below.
