MobiKwik denies alleged data leak on Dark Web

Earlier, MobiKwik’s (digital wallet company) user alleged that there has been a breach of the data and that hackers can access the data through the search engine. However, the company is denying any such claims. Nevertheless, this claim is supported by independent security researchers that say that there has been data that goes more than 8.2TB on the dark web sales.

Hackers that had the data for a long time have now made it available for everyone on search engines including the phone numbers, names, and email IDs of the users. The company has denied the claims with the lack of evidence of any such breach.

MobiKwik spokesperson said that the company is very serious about the security and data security laws that they take as the priority.

The company is working with requisite authorities as stated by the spokesperson and will also get the forensic data security audit from third-party.

The breach first came into the spotlight in February when the researcher RajShekhar Rajaharia said that the private and sensitive information of millions of users is available on the dark web. He also mentioned that the Aadhar cards, PAN, and other such documents are also accessible and put up by the ninja_storm hacker’s group.
