‘Supari Attackers’ the name is not so popular but it is very harm full since they provide Cyber crime-as-a-Services (CAAS). India is facing a growing warning from them (Supari Attackers), according to the Experts. Our country is going toward the digitalization but haven’t proper strong law or policy to stop this rapidly growing Cyber crime which hurt the Country. A long series of hacks and cyber crimes already has been observed by the India, in last few years and massive number allegiance to Pakistan. Near about 56% to 58% cases from 2013 to May 2016 which includes Website damage.

Experts say that the country is going towards the cashless economy but the country should not be caress about the cyber crime, where numbers of network searching cases are increasing every day. Detecting the vulnerability in systems is first that can be stolen the sensitive data.
CAAS’ increasing prevalence has a more sign that the breeding of malware cases and codes of Malicious/virus. 1.57 lakh Cyber crimes in the 2013-2016 – the NSG website’ hacking within 87,412 were the website damaged cases, the report released by the ministry of affairs (MHA) and Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-in), and also according to the experts 13,364 of website damaged and malware attack, 10,454 of network scanning, and 17.2% of virus & malicious codes.
“The figures from the government, though only representative, confirm the ground reality. The security concerns need to be addressed on a war footing. In India, CAAS came to the forefront in 2015, but the lack of awareness among probing agencies means there is no specific classification.” Said by the Pavan Duggal, Cyber crime expert and Supreme Court advocates.He also said “Last year, I remember a case where a known terror group had sought hackers and many Indians had joined the group. Our police don’t categorize these as CAAS cases and book them under various sections. While we don’t have the correct figure, I am sure CAAS has increased in the past one year,”
Mr. Rod Ramussen, vice president of CIO insight report, 2016 saw a global spike in CAAS “There has been a seismic shift in the ransom ware threat, expanding from a few actors pulling off limited, smaller-dollar heists targeting consumers to industrial-scale, big-money attacks on all sizes and manner of organizations, including major enterprises.”
“Network probing is people looking for vulnerabilities in systems which will eventually be breached to steal data. Amateurs don’t do it; these are professionals. Also, malware propagation and web intrusion are indicators of hired tools if not services” cyber expert Mirza Faizan Asad.
Duggal said “There are such institutes in every major city. They are not regulated, charge between Rs 10,000 and Rs 40,000 for certificates and promise jobs which don’t actually exist. Armed with the required skills and with no strong law in place, the candidates may stray”.
25-30 training centres are in Bangaluru and many centres are there in Pune said Faizan. Faizan and Duggal also said in a big concern that hackers are hiring from the other country, many Indian also be trained by ethically with professional trainers.
