agency CBI's internet space resulting in a 'dead' website which is not 
working even after 10 days of the cyber attack.

The website of the agency which collapsed after being attacked by

bring back the website to normal are finding the job too complicated 
because of software programmes used by the hackers, official sources 
said.

The experts are also looking at any possible worms or programmes that

The sources said efforts are on to incorporate more security features to
