My e-mail account was hacked, says Justice Lokur

Addressing a conference on enforcement of cyber crimes, Justice Lokur said last year his e-mail account was hacked. The hacker had sent mails informing people that he has started an automobile spares business.

“People called me to ask whether I have resigned as a judge and started a business,” he said.

But on a serious note, Justice Lokur said his worry was that the servers of the Delhi High Court do not fall prey to cyber crime. Lokur said that the computers of the High Court had judgments and court proceedings.

Recently, Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan had revealed that information about bank accounts of apex court judges was removed from the Supreme Court website after a person informed him that the data can be used to siphon off money.

“Judges of the Supreme Court published details of the assets on the website. Some judges gave their bank account (details).

“Within a week, I got a letter from a person (asking us) ‘please do not disclose your bank account (as) within days your entire money will be taken by somebody else... so, it is very easy to take money from your personal accounts using all these computer technology,” the Chief Justice had said.
