Websites of Ryan International School Hacked


On Wednesday, many websites connected to the Ryan International group were hacked.


A hacker group, calling themselves as the Kerala Cyber Warriors, says that the websites have been hacked for offering "tribute" to 7-year old child Pradyuman, who has been found dead having his throat slit in Ryan International School washroom of Bhondsi area, Sohna Road, Gurugram on 8th September.


The group also posted one photograph of Pradyuman with one message stating "you may be gone but you will never be forgotten."


The hackers started tribute by saying "You [Pradyuman] may be gone, but you will never be forgotten." After this, the hackers also posted one message for Ryan International School management, saying that "citizens of India demands (sic) justice for the innocent soul Pradyuman Thakur, who lost his life due to your security negligence."


The message further continued saying that: "school is just a business for you. What responsibility you put towards your students??" It further says that, (sic) what safety and security measures you are providing in your school?? The message also alleged that the CCTV cameras of the school where the 7-year-old child Pradyuman has been murdered are not working. Indiatoday.intoday posted on September 13th, 2017, stating the hackers as saying that the Ryan school are also unsuccessful in checking their employees background.


At the time of last upgrading this report, the website looked normal; it was not known immediately that how long the homepage of the website remained defaced. When the hack was live, IndiaToday.in managed to collect screenshots of the homepage displaying the photo of 7-year-old Pradyuman along with a message to the management of Ryan. The photo and the text were covered with a photo of a person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, the signature clothing of hackers belonging to the group 'Anonymous'.


The hackers demand justice for the death of Thakur who was murdered on Friday. They also blamed the school authorities for not repairing CCTV cameras and for not verifying the background of employees at the time of hiring them. Moreover, the hackers criticize the school for permitting staff of vendors to enter school buildings and washrooms of students.


Four websites were hacked by the group: ryaninternationalschools.org (of Ryan International School), ryaninternational.org (the official website of the group), iceplex.tv (website of Ryan TV) and ryanglobalschools.com (its global website).
