India’s largest information technology services company, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has become the latest target of hackers. The hacker has posted a “For Sale” message on the site, which is written in both French and English. Ironically, the company produces security systems software.

The hackers not only attacked the website but also allegedly changed its domain name to 205.178.152.154 from 216.15.200.140, re-pointing the name server (NS) records of the company’s website. The hacker had also put up a whos.among.us widget to display how many people were on the site at any given point. The hackers, according to a report, also provided an email id, abed_uk@hotmail.com.

The hack is believed to be a DNS hijack, which is similar to the breach that Twitter succumbed to last year. The company has restored its website, after hackers changed its domain name and put it up for sale.
