Professional hacker sent mails

Date: September 22, 2008

AHMEDABAD: In the first e-mail sent minutes before the serial blasts in Ahmedabad on July 26, 2008, it took the security and intelligence agencies almost five hours to locate the exact place from where the mail was sent.

It was then that the cops zeroed in on the Wi-Fi connection of Kenneth Haywood, a resident of Sanapada , Navi Mumbai.

In the second mail, Guru Nanak Khalsa College's computer lab was used for sending the mail. The tech-savvy terrorists had outdone security agencies again here. According to cyber experts, "The intruders had even hacked into the administrator's rights to wipe out the entire internet surfing history along with cookies, important e-links that could have led the cops back to the terrorists. The email sender is a professional hacker and knows his business."

The third mail received just before the Delhi blasts was no different. Designed in the same fashion, the mail even contained a video. However, considering the size of an attachment, the sender has used .wmv format that takes less space than traditional .mpg or .avi or .mov.
