Hackers have posted personal data of 2.9 crore job-seeking Indians on the dark web, according to reports by international online intelligence firm Cyble

"29.1 million Indian jobseekers' personal details leaked in deepweb for free. We usually see this sort of leaks all the time, but this time, the message header got our attention as it included a lot of personal details where most of the things are generally static such as education, address etc," said Cyble in its blog.

Data of some of the leading job aggregator websites were also leaked as per screenshots posted by Cyble and the company is currently investigating into the source of the data leak.

"It appears to have originated from a resume aggregator given the sheer volume and detailed information. We will update this article as new information is identified," Cyble said.

The online intelligence company Cyble has also recently revealed the hack of education technology firm Unacademy which is funded by Facebook and Sequola.
