The Great Cyber Robberies Expose Our Sordid Underbelly!

Does the future look too rosy for us, – the new digital India?
It’s not beyond reasonable reservation. While our government is pressing for cashless transaction, a thick mantle of fear hangs loosely around the wrong encryption policy and slack cyber security measures taken by AM-ADMI.

Not the Giant Corporations, Biggest Data Theft Hit Common People Most

“Want to buy some profile dumps. Is there any? I’m ready to pay in Bitcoins.”
After posting this message in three “TOR NETWORK” message boards, hidden in the dark web, my wait was over after nearly twenty hours when an “Anonymous” asked in a “TORCHAN” board (http://zw3crggtadila2sg.onion/): “How we know you’re not an FBI scum”?

Ransomware: How can I save my SOUL from cyber attacks?

Cyber attackers swooping on computer network and lock the essential files encrypting them and demanded for a ransom that you had to pay in bitcoin – a currency that runs in the dark web.

Ransomware is the new Threat: Pay the Kidnappers a Ransom and Obtain your Essential Files

The real life kidnapping model has just morphed into a new avatar in the virtual world encrypting your essential files, demanding money, holding you as a hostage. Cyber criminals have now adopted the same ‘real-life’ kidnapping technique to snatch your valuable documents holding you for a hostage to make a deal. In such situations you need to buy your freedom for exchange of a ransom.
