Pay Current Market Value!

The Maharashtra Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission ordered a building firm to either hand over a finished flat to a complainant within three months, or pay him the current market value of the flat. General physician Anant Ieetkar has been fighting a five-year battle with Padma Construction on this matter. The current market value of the 1,200-sq ft apartment is Rs60 lakh. In addition, Dr Ieetkar will also get Rs3 lakh as compensation for mental harassment and Rs30,000 for legal charges. He had purchased the flat for Rs18.9 lakh in 2008. Padma Construction did not appear before the Commission to defend itself and the order was passed ex-parte.

Adobe hacked, credit card info of 2.9 million accounts stolen

Adobe said its security team has discovered sophisticated attacks on its network, involving illegal access to customer information as well as source code for numerous products

Adobe Systems, which makes software such as Photoshop and Acrobat, on Friday said the credit card information of 2.9 million customers has been stolen from its web site in a cyber attack.

 

Adobe, in a blog post, said its security team discovered sophisticated attacks on its network, involving the illegal access to customer information as well as source code for numerous Adobe products.

 

“Our investigation currently indicates that the attackers accessed Adobe customer IDs and encrypted passwords on our systems. We also believe the attackers removed from our systems certain information relating to 2.9 million Adobe customers.

 

“This includes customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and other information relating to customer orders,” it added.

 

Adobe said while it believes the attackers did not remove decrypted credit or debit card numbers from its systems, it is working internally and with external partners and law enforcement to address the incident.

 

The company said it is notifying customers and resetting passwords. It has also alerted banks processing Adobe payments to help protect customer accounts and is working with federal law enforcement on its related investigation.

 

“Cyber attacks are one of the unfortunate realities of doing business today. Given the profile and widespread use of many of our products, Adobe has attracted increasing attention from cyber attackers,” Adobe chief security officer Brad Arkin wrote in the blog post.

When databases of software companies of this repute can be hacked then what claim the UIDAI make on their databases being the most secure? More importantly the software firms and the people involved in UIDAI are of inferior quality when it comes to software development and technology per se.


One can only hope that while the fingerprint scanners of IPhone are getting hacked (just a few days after the launch), the powers that be are monitoring such events.

Stock Shock!
