Mahie Gill is furious and the cause of her ire is the hacker who has played havoc with her e-mail ID. Her account has been sending spam and her outbox is full of messages to random people she has not e-mailed to.
What is worrying her is that confidential information that included film scripts, her shooting schedules, personal photographs and details might be in the in-box of several people as the hacker had been busy sending e-mails from her account.
And what compounded the problem is that she realised it only a day later after the problem ensued. Her e-mail account was hacked on March 29 but as she was shooting for the sequel of a Salman Khan starrer that day, she did not access her mail.
The actress realised it only the next day when she logged in. Though she immediately changed her password, by then the hacker had done extensive damage forcing her to lodge a complaint.
Says Mahie, “I have filed a complaint with the Mumbai cyber crime department. I have a lot of important information in my mail. I hope that it does not get misused.”
Though she is currently in Jallandhar due to personal commitments, she is following the case closely. She is currently feeling handicapped without an account as she has been told to create a new one. “My biggest worry is that the scripts and my personal stuff might fall into wrong hands,” she rues.
