Shiv Sunny reports:

Four young hackers have been arrested for allegedly digitally shoplifting vouchers worth Rs92 lakh [$134,985.29 USD] by tampering with the data of e-commerce websites at the payment gateway stage. Two of them are BTech dropouts, one is pursuing engineering while the other is a BCA from Delhi University, police said.

Calling it the first such case reported from the national capital, DCP (south) Ishwar Singh said these hackers used these vouchers at popular e-commerce sites such as MakeMyTrip, Flipkart, Amazon, Dominos Pizza, Myntra and Shoppers Stop, among others, said police.

As an aside, the photo of the four suspects in police custody is somewhat stunning. They seem to have asked them to line up nicely for the camera. Three of the four almost look like they’re smiling.
