The official website of Rajasthan Public service commission(RPSC) was found to be hacked and defaced by the Pakistani hacker named "Codacker" with the message "Pakistan Zindabad".
The hacker placed two links in the News section that leads to the defacement page. According to the TOI report, the website was restored by the admin and changed the password of the website.
"We also put the websites on surveillance and have reported to the IT ministry,"K K Pathak, secretary of RPSC told Times of India.
But it doesn't seem like they have fully restored the website. At EHN, we are still able to see the defacement page uploaded at the "http://rpsc.rajasthan.gov.in/index.html".

Changing the password alone won't help in stopping the hackers. They should identify the vulnerability that allowed the hacker to breach the website and patch that vulnerability.
