Mohammed Peerbhoy, the alleged media chief of the Indian Mujahideen 
(IM), has told investigators that an Italian expert taught him hacking.

The 31-year-old's employer had apparently sponsored him to learn cyber 
security skills against hacking from the Internet security expert in 
Hyderabad two years ago, but Peerbhoy instead used his acquired 
expertise to hack Wi-Fi networks to send terror emails.

Peerbhoy, currently in the custody of Delhi Police's Special Cell for 
having allegedly sent the IM email preceding the September 2008 serial 
blasts in the city, told his interrogators that "an Italian internet 
security expert, along with a few others, taught him how to hack first 
before learning measures to counter it", said a senior investigator who 
did not wish to be named as he is not authorised to talk to media.

Peerbhoy, a former principal software engineer with Yahoo! in Pune, had 
learnt the "hacking skills" at a six-day course on information security 
in Hyderabad in May 2007.

The course was organised by Internet security provider  E2 Labs and 
Yahoo! had paid them around Rs 70,000 for Peerbhoy's training.

The course was imparted at E2 Labs. School of Ethical Hacking, which 
according to the company's website is "Asia's first" such school.
