"Airtel Is Spying On You. Indian Coder Who Exposed This Gets Legal Notice From Israel"

Imagine an Israeli company spying & collecting your personal and browsing information without your knowledge and then selling it to Airtel India.
Now imagine an Indian coder exposing this malpractice.
Now imagine the unthinkable: the Israeli company sending a legal notice threatening the Indian coder with Indian laws.
Sadly, that’s exactly what has happened.

Here’s how this story unfolded:

On 3rd June, 2015, Thejesh GN, an infoactivist and programmer from Bangalore noticed that Airtel is secretly injecting scripts into user’s web browser & exposed it.


The code tries to insert a toolbar into the user’s browsing session.


In layman’s terms, Airtel was collecting user information & trying to alter user behavior without user permission: a practice that’s as unethical as it sounds.

If that wasn’t enough, Thejesh received a threatening notice (Cease & Desist notice) from an Israeli company named Flash Networks Limited.

 Here is the whole legal notice.


Bottomline is, an Israeli company threatening an Indian for exposing an Indian company’s malpractice is what Shahid Kapur would perfectly describe as Chutzpah.

Is Airtel aware that their partner-in-crime is harassing an innocent well-wisher and activist for a crime he never committed? Is Airtel aware that injecting malicious scripts into unsuspecting user’s web browser is considered unethical throughout the world? Is Airtel taking things for granted? Is Airtel taking its users for granted? Will Airtel respond to this issue or decide to bury its head under the sand?
If an Israeli company given access to such data, why isn't it a matter of national security?
