NEW DELHI, INDIA: A 19 year old villager from Odisha has hacked into a Hyderabad-based company, causing a loss of Rs 60 lakh.

Himalaya Mohanty, a native of Shibapura village in Balasore district, infiltrated into the EPABX toll-free number of Lloyd Electricals and Engineering Ltd by using his 3-inch mobile phone. He later uploaded the code along with the toll-free number of Lloyd on a website which allowed him to make free calls via toll-free number.   

Mohanty is currently pursuing his ITI course from a private institution and acquired his hacking skills by participating in online forums. He is capable to hack into Wi-Fi routers, Facebook and email accounts along with smartphones as well.

He used Trojan (virus) to breach the systems.

There are many forums available on the internet that serves as a meeting place for some of the most dangerous hackers in the world. Underground forums are providing education as well as training to black hat wannabes on how to become a better, and more effective, attacker. According to Wired nearly one-third of all the discussion threads are dedicated to hacker training, relaying tips and tricks of the trade for those seeking to sharpen their skills and build their credentials on the dark web.

Most of the forum discussions are also dedicated to the use of different hacking tools and programs that are available in the marketplace.

The most popular subjects being discussed on these forums are Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and SQL injection attacks, followed by the use of shell codes, spamming, cross-site scripting (XSS) techniques, brute-force attacks, and HTML injections.
