New Delhi:

Senior journalist and columnist Barkha Dutt’s Twitter account got hacked by the hacking group Legion on late Saturday evening. It comes days after Twitter handles of Rahul Gandhi, Indian National Congress and industrialist Vijay Mallya were hacked by the same group.

Claiming responsibility of the Twitter hack, the group has  also tweeted out her email address and its password, while glorifying the group saying “Long live the legion”.

But It remains an undeniable fact that despite strong cyber laws and tracking systems, the enforcement agencies are unable to curb such hacking incidents. This raises questions on the cyber laws and the concerned security systems.
