Infinitely Campus Virtual (ICV) has just announced that it has detected a malicious cyber attack against its campus virtual.
In the meantime, ICV has also begun investigating the extent of the attack.
The company, which has offices in New Delhi and Mumbai, is a subsidiary of Tata Consultancy Services Pvt Ltd.
Its campuses are designed to offer online classes, courses and conferences, but students and staff may also participate in social activities, such as watching live sports.
According to a blog post, “The cyberattack is believed to be against the campus’s web portal and has targeted the entire website.
The site was initially brought down by the security department, but ICV and the IT department are currently investigating the attack and are working to ensure that it is detected and stopped immediately.”
ICV is also investigating a denial-of-service (DoS) attack that was launched against its websites last week, which led to the closure of its services.ICV also has plans to launch its own online classes.
A website titled “The Infinite Campus” is currently available in India.ICM’s campus virtual is a free online course offering courses for students of all ages, though ICV says that the site does not allow access to third-party software such as Google or Adobe.
It’s unclear whether ICV will offer online courses for all its campuses, or if only a few campuses will be included in the offering.
