first of all thanx for your valuable comment to my post bro 🙂 its a great honor to me. as you said complaining through the web is utterly a waste of time. In India, people often complaining about the cyber offences and the action towards the offence is also taken place only if they complain in straight. Now what i am trying to make aware of is, we can pinch them to react over it by complaining in straight, that too in a legal way. so that we can prove that we are a legal citizen of the country 🙂 quite funny right..? but this is what the true bro.
Password Cracking Facebook Account is not possible nowadays…. Facebook has a very sophisticated password management system now….. As for the case of Gmail and most other sites also its the same case…. The only reason we get hacked is by our own carelessness….. Most of the time people get hacked by Phishing pages that’s totally carelessness……
Now about the site getting hacked , that too similar case , cause i know about it as my site had also got hacked once…. One must be careful with the plugins they use and can’t blame the hackers always….. Its always better to contact an hacker and ask for checking our site for any vulnerability….
Stay Vigilant and Be safe !! that’s what I would like to say…… You can even contact the hackerz who hacked you and ask for compensation , if they don’t agree then You can Go for Cyber Cells for help…. 😉

WoW !! Great post Pradeep. It about time people started taking cyber crime seriously. And the best way to do that is by spreading awareness. Information security is the key to web development these days.
Thanks for your comment. Welcome
I really like your helpful information.
Awesome expertise concerning how to complaint cyber crime.
Thanks a lot for posting about it.
Thats really a great title and read i had. In india, contacting the police and solving a cyber crime case is a big mess. Only in a few states they have strong cyber cell team. Filing a complaint through the web is totally waste of time i believe. There is no much action taken against the complaints we file in straight..
