Yes, he's a bit more famous than a normal kid of his age. He has written 6 books(i dun think they are best selling, though). He has a certified course of his with an agreement with reliance group, more known as ANKIT FADIA CERTIFIED HACKER(google it and u'll get to know everything about it!)
After going through some of the pages some days back, I had come to know about a champ from my very own country namely ANKIT FADIA who wrote six bestselling books on hacking ( correct me if I am wrong).
Cant say that he's a cheat, he do have some great skills of a hacker with him, he has a good nature n behaviour but but but......he lives in more hype. He has a dedicated yahoo group for him(u can easily find it at yahoo groups).
I found it interesting, sat down to take some time to google about him and after sometime the forum discussions in various board started speaking about wherether he is a CHEAT or if he is really a HACKER? Meanwhile I opened his profile and saw that he has worked with some top notch companies like Symantec, Ms,...etc. So I dont think that he is a FAKE HACKER.
