In response to being award as "India's Best Ethical Hacking & IT Security Company" by NBC, Sunny Vaghela of TechDefence sends out a huge batch of unsolicited emails asking people to register to vote for a people's award. This batch was sent to 94 addresses starting with krutarth_m[at]yahoo.co.in and ending at manthan_patel15[at]yahoo.com. The addresses were in alphabetic order and had clearly been scraped, as they included a staff member of attrition.org that has no business relationship with Vaghela or TechDefence. We assume Vaghela doesn't see the irony in resorting to unethical spamming to brag about this award.
