(Editor's Note: Nailed it!)
In a shocking yet amazing recent development, the hacker group Anonymous India have claimed credit for the TRAI site being unavailable for a brief period of time. Unless you have been living under a rock the past few months, I am sure you are aware of the huge #NetNeutrality campaign going on in India. TRAI had asked Indian netizens their view on Net Neutrality. In response, netizens sent emails in millions in support of Net Neutrality. After the deadline, TRAI made online the responses, which would have been fine. But, along with responses, they also made online the email ids. Seriously, transparency is well and good, but there still exists a thing called "Privacy." This is a serious breach of privacy, especially from an outfit that everyone trusts, i.e. the Government of India. People have been up in arms about this. Anonymous India thus decided to hack the TRAI site, the reason apparently being "just preventing spammers from accessing those Email IDs posted by TRAI publicly." Well, I do not know whether I should worry over the fact that GOVERNMENT OF INDIA could not prevent hackers from hacking their site or that these hackers are so competent that they could hack the TRAI. So, I will just ignore all the bad stuff and focus on the fact that right now, the hackers seem to be speaking for the netizens. We'll now just have to wait and watch what the next episode in this drama-filled saga will be. P.S. Netizens, be extra aware of all the spam and promotional mails that will surely be flooding your inbox. P.P.S. Also, this might be a good time to update your antivirus.
