Less than a week after its CEO and co-founder Rahul Yadav was sacked, realty portal Housing.Com’s website was hacked today, going down multiple times.
The site was hacked by unknown users with the home page displaying “#rahulyadav #housingdown”.
“Yes! We will solve real estate, but 10X better with The Chief Architect,” the message on the page said.
It further said: “We’ve achieved a lot in the last three years, but the game has just begun. Yet, we are hungry for all! :)”. It ended with portal’s catch-line “#LookUp”.
Housing.Com spokesperson was not available for comments.
On his Facebook page, Yadav, known for his mercurial temperament, posted a screenshot of the hacked page saying: “I would have DESIGNED it better. #NotInvolved? #LoveYouTechTeam”.
The development comes days after Yadav was sacked from the Japan’s SoftBank-backed portal.
On July 1, Housing.Com board had sacked Yadav with immediate effect, saying that his behaviour towards investors and media was not “befitting” of a CEO.
