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.
