Indian Air Force online exam hacked

A team of tech-savvy fraudsters hacked into an online exam for selection of non-commissioned  Indian Air force (IAF) officers in Rohtak.

While on Saturday, Rohtak police have arrested two people for allegedly hacking.

According to Jagbir Singh, the SHO of Rohtak city police station, the exam was held from September 13 to 16, and there are five computers that were hacked.

The exam was conducted by an agency which was outsourced by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing,  Singh said. The fiber cable of the exam center was laid from the first floor of an adjacent private hospital, he said.

The fraudsters were able to establish a remote access to computers used in the exam by setting up a parallel network. The team was helping candidates by giving them answers to the questions even they were just sitting idle in front of their computers.

The five hackers were found sitting with their laptops and sending exam questions to experts, the SHO said.

“Two men, who have been identified as masterminds of the entire racket and ran the exam center, are on the run,” said Singh. “They are J S Dahiya, a retired principal of the Jhajjar ITI, and his partner Sanjay Ahlwat, who runs a competitive exams’ coaching center."

However, the exact number of beneficiaries are not known, but the accused men charged between Rs 3.5 lakh and Rs 6 lakh from each candidate.
