GT: What is your opinion about cyber-war?
Parul: Cyber War now these days is mainly happening b/w india,Pakistan ,china & some crew’s from all parts of world. The Little crews & groups call themselves “The Patriots Hackers of nation”.The hackers who call themselves Patriots hackers are just doing such silly stunts for getting popularity & attention,That’s all game of becoming famous & getting fame.I ll just say one thing If they really want to be a good hacker then they should work for development and security. There is no need to get fame and money via wrong ways or hurting peoples intentions via hacking defacing or mass defacing general public or govt. websites. If they people will work without any mean, without harming others and do everything openly… Only then we can stop cyber terror & Cyber War

I have an huge photographic collection of my visits to hong kong,macau,china,Malaysia & Singapore.
GT: At what age did he start hacking and what motivated you?
Parul: I remember the day when i was in my 10th standard and one of my social networking accounts got hacked. i was afraid and started searching all over the internet exploring all the search engines n etc and found many things although I was unable to find the culprit but i got that much interested in this field i choosed hacking as part of my life . I often tried alot of scripts,codes and applications at my school’s computer’s and amazed my friends and teachers .
2010, I Launched My Own NGO Third Eye Ethical Hackers Society (Regd) and Started Campaigns and Workshops on upper level went to many of Colleges,Schools Corporate and Created as more awareness about the education of hacking about the art of hacking , although i also received many Cyber Crime cases related to Bank Fraud .
The Famous one was LEADER VALVES LTD. 66 LACKS PHISHING FRAUD.
I was able to trace the person with its details and source how he hacked into but after some days i received some threatening calls related to the case..
GT: For our viewers who are not familiar with “Ethical Hacking”, how would you describe it?
Parul: According to me Hacking is an art & there is nothing unethical in doing Hacking. Ethical hacking is analogous to saying Ethical Rapist. however, Hacking is the passion to pursue anything with deepest dedication, its all about knowing computers as they are & beyond.
Its an in-depth art.
Everythinghas its 2 sides an good & a bad .It Depends on a person how he/she is taking it
Hacking is not moral/immoral legal/illegal it’s the person who is ..
I ll just say If somebody has a little knowledge about hacking & securities .he/she should contribute apart of knowledge to the society for the betterment & development of the country.
GT: Your words for our viewers on how to keep themselves safe on Internet
Parul: It’s an old saying that “The only Safe Computer in the world is that which is buried 60 feets under the ground in an switch off state without an internet connection along with 4 body guards” .
For Playing Safe on Internet I will simply suggest beware of fake links(do not click on unknown links Ex:tinyurls, freehosts,money job offers )
use strong anti viruses , keep strong passwords (avoid including ur family names,aliases,mobile numbers,d.o.b and such personal things) as passwords.. Do not trust any stranger. Get updated your knowledge skills related to cyber securities & hacking.
Join good blogs & forums like GEEKTECH . To get yourself updated with extra knowledge.
GT: Your words/suggestion for GeekTech and its Team
Parul: Geek Tech is doing an wonderful job by providing all the knowledge,news,reviews ,tutorials related to hacking & cyber securities . Its beneficial for all of us . I wish Geek Tech Team Luck for the future & also appreciate the wonderful job they are doing .
