Confidential information of 100 million citizens has been leaked on the Dark Web. Which is considered to be the biggest data theft incident in the history of India. Information technology experts believe that the leaked information is actually a collection of discarded information. And this incident happened from the server of Juspey, a mobile payment solution company in Bangalore.
It is clear from the screenshot of the leaked database that it is sensitive enough. These include the brand of the user’s card, i.e. Visa or MasterCard, the expiration date of the card, the last four digits of the card, the masked card number, the nature of the card or the debit card or credit card, the customer’s name on the card, the card fingerprint, the card ISIN, the customer There is highly confidential information like ID and Merchant Account ID. Jaspey admits that more than 16 types of information from around two crore customers have been leaked. Which is a part of the stolen information of a total of 100 million customers.
Another part of the stolen information is the users’ phone numbers and e-mail addresses. Although most of this information is hidden, some of the card numbers are visible. This reduces the risk of financial corruption, but hackers can easily use it to commit fraud.
Cybersecurity researcher Rajshekhar Rajahariya first noticed the issue. He was the first to say that huge amount of customer information has been sold on the Dark Web. Hackers can sell it on the Dark Web for a good amount of money.
Juspey stores card information for its users in accordance with the rules set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. However, if the hackers get the algorithm used to create the card fingerprint, then they can easily find out the masked card number, Rajasekhara fears.
Juspayer’s customer list includes companies such as Amazon, Airtel, Swiggy, Vodafone, Uber, Cred, Ola and Flipkart. However, a spokesman for Juspey said: “Our server was attacked on August 18, 2020, but it was blocked. No card numbers, financial information or transaction information was stolen. Some plane text e-mails and phone numbers have been leaked. The hackers found the key developer of Juspey, he said.
