The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has filed a second police report on Saturday after discovering another duplicate of its website, www.mom.gov.sg.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, the ministry said that access to the official MOM website remains unaffected and there have also not been any reports of user data being compromised to date.

This comes two days after MOM found a first duplicate of its website on Thursday.

The ministry added in the same post: "The domain name of the duplicate website - www.momgov.sg - has been deleted at 11.36pm on 29 Nov 2013, but it will take about 48 hours for servers worldwide to effect the deletion. This means that some of you may still be able to view the website till then."

"We urge the public to only use the official MOM website at www.mom.gov.sg for all MOM matters," it said.
