Terrorist groups were also making rampant use of cyber space andsocial networking sites to carry out terror attacks, the minister told the Rajya Sabha.

“Various methods are being used by cyber terrorists such as email for communications, posting and hosting of provocative clips, photographs, morphed images and content on social networking sites for inciting violence, disturbing public order and malicious propaganda,” he said.

He said the cyber terrorists also took to phishing and identity theft for financial frauds, attacks on online services and creation of malicious code to compromise computers.

“However, the basic infrastructure, including use of explosive substances for fabrication of bombs, largely remains the same,” the minister said in a statement.

He said the government had taken a series of measures to train police personnel and enforcement agencies to deal with cyber terrorism.
