The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a public advisory against a phishing attack after a fake website impersonating the official website of the top court was created and hosted on the Internet.
The notice said that the attackers were soliciting personal details and other confidential information.
It advised the public to neither click nor share on links they receive without verifying the authenticity, adding that the registered user of the domain name of the Supreme Court is www.sci.gov.in.
