Once in a while I write blogs as its not something I like a lot but sometimes I have no options but to write on request of friends or awareness issues. About Hon. Minister Mr Jiten Chaudhury's Email hacking is one of these issues which I voluntarily acted upon at Minister's request to unearth the source of hacking which was traced to Lagos, Nigeria - one of the most lawless places on earth. This blog introduces some luring techniques they use in their email communications with target victims. And finally zeroing on the actual hacker.
Lets first take a look at the Hacker who hacked Mr. Chaudhury's Email and sent emails to Mr Chaudhury's friends for money. Email conversation between Hacker and Mr Chaudhury's friend Dr Subir C in brief below(Dr Subir C email not published) :
