I-T warns taxpayers of fake mobile apps

The Income Tax department has alerted people against fake mobile applications that compromise confidential financial information. The department has warned taxpayers that illegal "mobile applications" circulating in the web world for smartphones, especially Android and BlackBerry phones, "may not be according to the department's data structure" and parameters. Filers (people who file tax returns) using them are doing this at their own risk," the department said in its recent advisory issued to taxpayers. The department's technology engineers are in coordination with the national agency of computer and cyber security sleuths and anti-hacking agencies to weed out these issues.
