Our WiFi was hacked, says Kamath family

September 14, 2008 15:19 IST

Sarika [Images] Kamath, wife of K M Kamath from whose Internet Protocol address the terror mail was sent around the time of the Delhi serial blasts, on Sunday said they have been 'victims of technology'.

"Hacking has become a terror for common citizens like us. We are innocent and hard-working people," Sarika told PTI from her residence in Chembur, an eastern suburb in Mumbai.

Sarika and her husband were being questioned by the Mumbai Anti Terrorism [Images] Squad since Saturday night. The ATS tracked the IP address of the terror mail on Saturday night and found it belonging to Kamath.

Terrorists have accomplished Operation BAD

Sarika further said the ATS after preliminary probe has stated that it seems to be a case of hacking the WiFi, which was similar to the case of US national Kenneth Haywood.

"We did not feel the need to secure or password-protect our internet connection. But now it has become a necessity for all citizens to secure their connections," Sarika said.

An open challenge

The ATS on Saturday night traced the terror mail sent under the name of Indian Mujhahideen to the IP address of a firm, Kamran Power Control Pvt Ltd, located at 201-202 Eric House, 16th Road, Chembur, an eastern suburb in Mumbai. The service provider is Mahanagar Telephone Nigam [Get Quote] Limited.
