Legion hacker group to target sansad

The hacker group expressed its support for #DigitalIndia provided it's on cryptocurrency. "Additionally, it looks like the person responsible gave the Washington Post an interview, claiming "(we) ended up with access to over 40k+ servers in India, and we decided - hey, why not write a tool to sift through them for interesting data?" The group stated that it did not release info as their step might create chaos in the country.

However, little headway has been made in the probe so far by the police team, which is also investigating a similar hacking into Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's twitter account a few days earlier.

The hack is similar to both Rahul Gandhi's and other Congress members Twitter account hacks or Vijay Mallya's account hack last week.

In another tweet from Legion through Mallya's account, the group denied blackmail.

The APC national secretary said that thugs must not be allowed to steal the votes of the Rivers electorate on Saturday. Tai is among areas where violence scuttled the holding of polls in the restive Rivers State south of the country.

"Next is a dump of emails". "Let me tell you...the banking system of India is deeply flawed and has been hacked several times".

It claimed that there are various other hacking groups which have access to important financial institutions.

When asked about the future targets, the Legion group declined to provide an exact reply. "We don't believe in a cashless economy at all, you need cash, you need cash, that's how things are, sorry mate". Even if you are ready to pay via mobile, the seller will not be educated to use them. Assange, the hacker said was a "cool guy", and while they respect what Snowden does, "he's only as cool as logging into a computer and dumping confidential d0x (documents).But neither of them can hack". The email service is provided by National Informatics Centre, which designs, builds and manages all the information and communication technology systems used by the Government of India.

In screenshots purportedly showing the text conversation between one of the hackers and the Washington Post reporter, the political motives behind the online attacks were vague and messages were littered with references to drugs.
