Hackers using Pakistani software to compromise IRCTC Tatkal system, banks OTP safeguards: RPF officials

Railway Protection Force (RPF) sleuths from the South Western Railway (SWR) zone have busted a complex web of illegal operators and hackers who used Pakistani software to compromise the IRCTC Tatkal system to stealthily book reserved tickets, bypassing the Indian Railways as well as the banks OTP safeguards, an official said on Tuesday. “In September last year, intelligence agencies alerted on the use of illegal software for bypassing the IRCTC and bank security systems deployed in booking Tatkal tickets throughout India,” said a railway zone official.

Following multiple raids after the alert, RPF officials arrested a person who provided a lead about the mastermind behind the illegal software used for booking the tickets in stealth, to charge oblivious customers up to five times the price of a normal railway ticket.

  1. The Power trip is a generation trip and not a failure of the transmission grid.

    When PLF crosses a certain level – any power plant can trip – and then the power grid softwares sends auto signals,to other power plants,to increase PLF,& then, they also trip.

    It is a good fail safe mode,as it is better than a case,where the power plant blows up or breaks down.

    But THIS power cut is a part of a plan -as even the Nuclear power plants tripped (since the entire Pakistan blacked out) – which makes no sense,as a N-Power
    takes time to start & stop – unless it is programmed,to stop the steam turbines,at a certain PLF

    So this part of the ADS & BMD strategy,of Pakistan,with the following aims:

    Test the panic among Pakistanis (and there was none)

    Ensure that the Pakistani GBR radars used for ADS & BMD have stand by power (on auto mode for 24 hours)

    Ensure that the Pakistani GBR radars and Silos used for land based N-Missiles,have stand by power (on auto mode for 24 hours)

    Ensure Pitch dark mode for the IAF when the Indian weasels launch a pre-emptive strike (for 8-10 hours of nightfall)

    Ensure Pitch dark mode for the IAF when the Indian weasels launch a counter to the Pakistani pre-emptive strike

    Ensure that all critical military hardware of the Pakistani military has auto power back up (in the day & night)

    Ensure that there is no thermal or signature of Pakistani generators feeding power to vital Pakistani military units

    But I take it 1 step further ! dindooohindoo

    It is a mock run by ISI to hack into Indian Power plants and trip the Indian Grid (which has tripped many times – but not all over India)

    For a nation of the scale and spread of India,excluding the hydropower plants,all else can be tripped ! And fi the Grid systems are tripped,then the power is out for the whole of India (which is Y,India has regional Grids)

    DPRK hacked into the Kudankalam N-Power plant.And they can do it again ! A DPRK-Pakistan JV can do wonders in India (based on the learnings of Kudankulam) !
