New Delhi: The CBI has registered a case in connection with the alleged virus attack on security systems of the newly constructed T-3 terminal of Indira Gandhi
International Airport which almost shut down the operations there about three months ago.

However, they said the code seems to have come from a
remote location.

The problem resulting from this alleged hacking attempt
brought down the CUPPS on the afternoon of June 29 resulting
in collapse of counters of all airlines at T-3.

The system which also informs about expected time of
arrival and departure of flights could only be restored after
12 hours, forcing the authorities to turn to manual mode which
caused delays in flights and waiting time for passengers.

The agency has registered the case under the IT Act
against unknown persons, they said.

The CBI has sought all records of the CUPPS which is
maintained by Aeronautical Radio Incorporated, they said,
adding that the probe is at preliminary stage and any
indication about the source of the code will become clear
after scrutiny of all the log details.
