Check All Dumped Emails of Barkha Dutt by Legion

A group of nine young Indian hackers named as Legion_Group has created a sort of havoc among powerful, greedy and rich Indians. Within one week, this group have hacked email and Twitter accounts of Rahul Gandhi, Indian National Congress, Vijay Mallya, Barkha Dutt and Ravish Kumar. They have already claimed that Lalit Modi will be their next target. Obviously, Lalit Modi might have removed all sensitive data from his email and social media accounts. Legion has also dumped some private emails of Barkha Dutt and Vijay Mallya. They have claimed to keeping terrabytes of sensitive information of these high profile personalities and threatened to release them over time.

On a technical note. the group seems to have hacked into the official email server of these people through Zero Day Exploit. Once they get access to the eMail server, they used it to reset the password of Twitter accounts. 

Barkha Dutt Dumped Email

Following are some of email communication dumped by Legion_group. There is no way to authenticate these stuffs. Barkha on her part has neither accepted nor denied the existence of these communications. She has just raised questions on the viability of Digital Payment System and cashless economy.

The most explosive all these seems to be the communication related to Jayalalitha. Whether she was being given wrong medicine for diabetes deliberately or by fault needs to be investigation. But, then again, first these messages need to be verified for authenticity.

Similarly, it is highly unlikely that Barkha Dutt will keep Rs. 7 Crores in her savings account as the email above shows. 

There are two points everyone should ponder over:

-         The dumped emails of Barkha Dutt or Vijay Mallya don’t show that hackers are intending to do some sort of public service.

-         The hacking of Congress and Rahul Gandhi account is a direct attack on the political democracy of India. Similarly, the hacking of two prominent NDTV journalists accounts is also a direct attack on the freedom of expression. These things need not be supported and rejoiced.
