Ekta Kapoor is the new victim of e-mail hackers!
New Delhi: With the alarming rate at which the cyber security is being hampered by hackers these days, there is no doubt that even the celebrities are soft targets. So when television’s soap queen Ekta Kapoor’s personal e-mail account got hacked, we could understand how grave the issue was.
A source close to Ekta had revealed that the latter was shocked to receive phone calls from friends who said that they got emails from her personal account which asked them to pay Rs 11,000 if they wished to audition for her shows.
Apparently, Ekta, who stays in touch with her friends in the US through her email, was shocked to know all this. Since money was involved in the incident, she thought about taking the matter seriously.
As a result, she sent text messages to all her friends saying that her account was hacked and immediately blocked the old e-mail ID and made a new one. She has decided to be careful in the future and now grants access to her e-mail to only a few selected people.
