Birla Public School websites hacked ?@#!

Birla Public school websites (www.bpsdoha.edu.qa) (www.bpsdoha.com) are hacked since the link became active for admissions for KG1 class. This happened right at 00:00 Hrs (midnight) on 02 Jan. 2016 when the link to pre-register for KG1 class went online.

Up to now by the time I am writing this post, its still inactive or being hacked by some paid hacker(s), for sure, so that no one can access the online pre-registration form...

I can't figure out that if a school can't save or stop its official websites from being getting hacked, what kind of security it can give to its students or staff ??? The website is designed & maintained by webincorp.com who even have not put basic firewalls to prevent their site from being getting hacked or not responding at all...really very shameful on such institutions are corporate money makers...

Private schools in Qatar are a con.. they know the public is deperate and use this to their advantage. All they're interested in is money

Renthere, you can try to meet the school management in person if they can accept admission application along with well wishes content type filled boxes..LOL

Or try visiting other Indian schools if they have any seats left !!

Me my wife and brother in law opened the website and clicked on the link by about 10. It opened and by the time we clicked on submit it showed that the form has been disabled. Will complain to SEC tomorrow. Fed up with these tricks. Hope the authorities take some action.

Brit and MM are among QL most famous critics/comment givers. Well this all was actually a Drama like most of Indian schools do here. Real action is done other way ;-)

But education levels of Indian schools here are lower as compared to most of public and convent schools back in India. BTW those who weren't lucky, there are other open options too...

Congrats to those who got lucky and hope their forms are 100% correctly filled that their lad will face a region oriented environment and interaction in the premises. Enthusiasts can watch videos on school's website to know and evaluate the teaching and discipline standards..

Really this matters (extract from school's webpage), well I doubt about it : The pre-Registration Form that you submit online will be carefully scrutinized. If false information is provided, your pre-Registration will be considered invalid. And in that case, your child will not be considered for Admission.

actually link opened at 10.05am. but when i filled the form and press the submit buttion, message appeared that form disabled. when i try to resubmit... message box showing that already full. no more seats available and do not meet any personal in school. what a DRAMA i dont understand. they can give seats to whom they want as it is a private organization, but same time it is not fare that fooling all the all people who really interested and believe them. better to not go in to this type of political game institution. all the best for whoever got seats luckily.. happy new year
