Email from a terrorist group, Indian Mujahideen, has been traced to a college in Mumbai. The email hinted at new terror attacks and warned that suicide bombers would be deployed. As a result, city colleges are working to eliminate the threat posed by unsecured Internet and Wi-Fi connections
A similar email was sent prior to serial bomb blasts in the west Indian city of Ahemdabad on July 26, 2008, which killed 42 people. That email was sent via a hacked computer with an unsecure Wi-Fi connection in a private Mumbai residence, and appears to be the first time that a local IP address has been hacked by terrorists.
