New Delhi: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) website has been allegedly taken down after they released all the email IDs of those who responded to their consultation paper on Net neutrality. Anonymous India, group of hackers, has claimed credit for taking down the website with a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack.
TRAI had released over one million names, email IDs and the contents of their responses in a downloadable PDF format on the TRAI website for public viewing.
TRAI had earlier asked for responses from service providers, their associations and general public for their views on regulating OTT or over-the-top applications and services which are accessible over the internet. Their draft consultation paper also addressed issues about security concerns and net neutrality. They received more than a million responses.
