A man who used to hack train ticket booking website IRCTC to generate fake tickets was arrested from Dakshan Darwaza area in eastern Uttar Pradesh's Basti town on Thursday by a joint team of the Central Bureau of Investigation and railway's vigilance department, police said.
He was taken on transit remand by the CBI and the Central Railway vigilance team for further questioning, the police officer added. A senior official said the online sale of such software raises serious questions about how secure is the website of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).
One of these websites Black Ts provides instant solution to the problems faced in running the software and also claims that its has bypassed the need for OTP (One Time Password) required for online payment while booking tickets. Another website tatkalsoftware.com makes similar offers for sale of illegal software for faster booking of Tatkal tickets.
