Dark Tracer: Govt Websites Are Not Secure

Summary

Dark Tracer, the Darkweb threat intelligence platform, revealed that many government institutions in Indonesia did not implement cybersecurity standards properly, such as the safer version of hypertext transfer protocol, HTTPS. In fact, Dark Tracer's first quarter 2022 report, HTTPS has become the global minimum standard in securing digital websites.

In its report, Dark Tracer mentions that several government institutions in Indonesia suffer from data leaks such as user names and passwords. Among the affected websites were those operated by BKN, Customs and Excise, the Finance Ministry, the Social Affairs Ministry, the Industry Ministry, and the Trade Ministry. Digital security observer from Vaksincom Alfons Tanujaya said that all information traffic between computers and servers would be visible without HTTPS protection. "Without any encryption... such information would be easily retrieved and used for crimes," Alfons said on Tuesday.
