California Man's Computer Used to Send Bomb Threat in India

Kim Zetter writes on Threat Level:

A California man currently renting a home in India is caught in the middle of an investigation into a series of bombs that exploded in India this last weekend, according to the Associated Press.

The 48-year-old man hasn't been identified by police and is not currently a suspect.

An e-mail, which bore the subject line "Await 5 minutes for the revenge of Gujarat," was sent from the man's computer to several Indian television stations minutes before 16 bombs exploded in Ahmadabad, a city in the western Indian state of Gujarat. Police believe, however, that the message likely did not originate from the man's computer and that someone else -- presumably a hacker -- simply used his computer and Yahoo account to send it.
