    i wonder we have got the best brais in the field of I.T. and still we are literally defenceless against these sc*ms!:tsk:i think its time for the GOI to recruit some of the top hackers in the country and form a anti-haking task force and mind it if guys like Ankit Fadia are recruited by the GOI then these "so called" anti-Indian hackers will be having nightmares dealing with these people:cool2:!

    Most hackers dont care what they hack, they want to get the thrill to hack anything government related. It does not really matter from where it comes from as long as they can damage something
