The ongoing conference of U.N. on telecommunication of disrupted when on late Wednesday the U.N website was hacked blocked by the unknown source. The U.N.’s International Telecommunications Union said:
The website was hit late Wednesday, blocking access to its main page and interfering with a closed-door working group”
The investigators are although still investigating the culprit behind all this but initial investigations are accusing hackers to be responsible of all this stuff. Hackers are pointed due to a very critical reason that is linked to this conference. The conference is held to increase cyber security.
The delegates are now more seriously thinking over the cyber security, especially due to Wednesday’s incident. But U.S officials are against it they want to have low government involvements in all these matters.
The head of the U.S. delegation, Ambassador Terry Kramer, told reporters
I support the efforts to expand Internet services to developing countries, but will stand against any possible rules that could allow more government oversight or surveillance of the Net.”
This is the first time when U.N communication has set a conference since 1988 to discuss the issue of cyber crime. So, it would be interesting to see what outcome this conference brings out. The conference is also set to discuss mobile roaming and land-line charges.
