All hacked sites were left with a deface page along with a message which gives us a little bit of clue why the sites were targeted. The deface page was expressed in following words:

  • Hacked by ExpirED BraiN and IceCream! 3xp1r3 Cyber Army, U declared me as not a part of “DIU” . I proved u wrong. I am not lacking my talents. Never judge anyone, don’t put anyone down. It’s my life….i will decide if i wanna be in!  “DIU” or not!

Hackers contacted me via email and explained that they managed to deface the main university site, allowing them to enter the server and deface all sites connected to university server. I was also told that hackers have access to university data but no intention to leak it online as this hack was done to expose security holes, requiring sites admin to develop their security skills.

Daffodil International University is among the top five universities in Bangladesh with global rank 66,973 and rank 401 in Bangladesh, according to Alexa.

At the time of publishing this article, most sites were restored and some were taken offline.
