TSLB Board Chairman, Dixon Seeto said that they are working with their hosts to distinguish the wellspring of the hacking, which incorporates looking for help from Google.

SEETO: “When we discovered the website was hacked, we immediately got an I.T person to see that the problem was fixed and he is working on that now and we are hoping for a new program to be install on the website to prevent this from happening. We are working with a with a reputable IT company which will design and implement a new website which will have the necessary security features, such as a very robust firewall, anti-virus software and a login portal.”

Mr Seeto clarified that if individuals utilize the URL of the site, they can abstain from viewing the undesirable content.

SEETO: “It’s only through google where you get this redirection of the sites that is not connected with us but if you go through a normal www.tslb.com you’ll get the acronym information.”

He added that students can speak with them through their Facebook page and if the need emerges, TSLB will publicize necessary information.

SEETO: “We are making sure that the information link with the students are always there and we are also using social media and facebook to get the information across, to let the information we want the students to know about. We have an office at 26 McGregor Road and we welcome students who want to take queries.”

He said that the confidential information of students registered under the loans and schemes are safe and were not hacked.

SEETO: “The confidential information of the students was not hacked. I think only basic structure of what we all about and all was hacked.”

Mr Seeto said that they are doing whatever they can to prevent this from re-occurring.
