Banks, Government Emails All Vulnerable to Us, Warn Hackers Legion

Legion, which has hacked the Twitter account of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, tycoon Vijay Mallya and NDTV journalists Barkha Dutt and Ravish Kumar, says its next target will be government officials, according to an interview with Factor Daily.

“Next is a dump of emails/ Which is – quite big. It includes a lot of _BIG FISH_,” Legion disclosed.

Legion describes itself as “anarchists” without political alignments, and told the Washington Post that its membership is “in the higher single digits” with lots of applicants in line.
At a time when the government is pushing with all its might for digital transactions, Legion has threatened banks and payment gateways. “We ourselves have confidential data pertaining to NPCI/ IDRBT hub servers, and even have the encryption keys/ certificates used by some banks in India (Not disclosed)

So, theoretically, we could generate ‘fraudulent’ financial messages- Let’s say, VIA IMPS or NEFT!” they told Factor Daily.

IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said security is being tightened with banks and “drills” are being carried out to guard against systems being compromised.

“Does that make #DigitalIndia safe? Maybe Modi should think all of this through before launching it” is what Legion said to FactorDaily.
