Over the last few weeks, there have been numerous cased of attempts to hack and data deletion by trouble makers. We took every opportunity to communicate with the trouble makers not to show mischievous behavior, harass members, attempt to hack or delete data.
We identified the IPs and traced the person involved and tried reaching them. However, most of the times, they would promise good behaviour but after few days, like a school child, felt that "ForumIAS" or "X Person" did not file a police complaint so "they cannot file a police complaint" and resorted to the same again.
This is to inform you that ForumIAS / Directors of ForumIAS / victimised persons has filed two First Information Reports againts
1) Harassment in violation of existing laws
2) Hacking and attempt to delete data amounting to commercial loss
Despite our best efforts, we failed to convince errant members from not indulging in either.
Some of the acts have caused have caused immense damage to ForumIAS's reputation as well as mental trauma to victims.
On a personal note, we just want to tell you that parents of one of the persons who was involved in such acts , parents have pleaded with us and have fallen sick. At the age of sixty years.
We have not tried to draw our own inference, but merely passed on user log information to the Cyber Crimes Department, who will act on the basis of it.
We thank ForumIAS members in the IPS for assiting us in the same.
Please understand that whatever you do here in the name of fun, may cause immense trauma to your parents and near and dear ones when you get caught. It almost becomes suicidal for parents, especially if you do not have a criminal history in the family.
So do not put yourself, in trouble and think about your parents.
We have been forced to act, because despite repeated warnings, people have failed to listen, and this should set an example for the future.
The victims and persons involved names are being kept confidential .
ForumIAS will fully support the investigation and will reserve all rights to protect both the rights of its female members as well data integrity and commercial losses due to data deletion.
Please behave responsibly.
