Following allegations of security lapses and manipulation in the website of the department of higher education (www.dheorissa.in) the state government on Wednesday made necessary changes to make the site more secure.
"Our website is hacking-proof and secured now. Accessing information from a website and hacking are two different things. In a bid to make everything more transparent, we have made all information open to all. Now, after the complaints, we have hidden all personal information of students," said
, the programme manager of
, the company that has developed the website.
Two students of the integrated MCA department of
on Tuesday alleged that the website can be hacked easily and personal information of students can be accessed by anyone. They also pointed out that some information in the website can be manipulated. The official website was also accessed through a different site - online.dheorissa.in/index.html - which indicates that it is not secure at all, they alleged.
"Even though the officials have repaired some flaws in the website, still there are some security breaches that require immediate attention, and precautionary measures should be taken," said Javed, a student of the university.
Panda, refuting the allegations, said, "We have taken all precautionary measures and have ways of tracking when and where the security was breached. We have a system through which we can get a back-up of all the information on the site within minutes before someone attempts to manipulate it."
The state government has made e-admission mandatory for 1,282 Plus-II and 162 degree colleges across the state. Through the system, as many as 3 lakh students will get enrolled in different courses at these educational institutes.
However, officials said they have plans to make the website more user-friendly and protected. At present, as many as 5,000 users in different colleges have been using the e-space user id and password for the admission process. "We are planning to give all official information, including registration number, report card, performances and attendance, to students through the user-id, which will be closed after they complete their course," Panda maintained.
This is not the first allegation of hacking of websites of educational institutes in the city. Earlier, the official websites of Utkal University and Ravenshaw University were attacked by hackers.
