Beware of Ankit Fadia

I have herd lots of times of newbies that they are very inspired by So called hacker Ankit Fadia, When I was in college I had also braught his first book on "Ethical Hacking"( which was full of CRAP). I herd he has started his own Certified Ethical Hacker courses, trying to fool people.
Some of my juniors were asking whether they should joined that course. First I thought it was CEH certification aided by these freaks. But it is not, it is Ankit Fadia Certified Ethical Hacker. I was could not stop laughing when I saw that this fellow has started his own certification course, which has offcourse ZERO value in any place you go. I have instructed my all contacts not to go for this kind of crap.
I am realy amzed what kinda effects the indian media has created about this Ankit fadia. Well I think that indian media is not that literate about the information security.

I recommend to readers not waste your time and money on the any crap from Mr Ankit Fadia.
