"There came a boy in my office who told me to name any website which he would then hack it. And believe me, the boy actually hacked it in front of me much to my disbelief. This incident happened a year back. When asked how he does it, he said that there are small tools available on Google with the help of which websites can be hacked and it just takes 2-3 hours of understanding these tools. These tools include some data tempering and data fiddler software which can be downloaded from Google. I called two of the top telecom and insurance companies in India and I asked the boy to hack their websites. He not only hacked the websites but also recharged their phones free of cost. What I am trying to say is that almost all the websites are 90% hackable and none of them are 100% secured. Even iCloud that claims to be a fully secured website has been hacked. So having a secured website is a myth. In today’s date, there are 2 legal provisions – if there is a criminal breach we can lodge the FIR and arrest the culprit. The other provision is that under the IT Act, civil penalties can be imposed on certain offences by a civil court and there is a different machinery for it. Each state should have an adjudicating authority. But sadly no one is aware of the presence of an adjudicating authority.”
