100 million cardholders' data leaked on dark web
In another data leak, sensitive information of over 100 million debit and credit cardholders have been leaked on the dark web, a security researcher reported.
Data leaked on the dark web includes names, phone numbers, and email addresses of the users, including the first and last digits of their cards. They are related to debit and credit card transactions, which occurred between March 2017 and August 2020, a media report said.
Without providing any specifics around the latest data leak, Juspay founder Vimal Kumar told Gadgets 360 that an “unauthorised attempt was detected” on August 18 that was terminated when in progress.
"No card numbers, financial credentials, or transaction data was compromised," Kumar said in an email. "Data records containing non-anonymised email, phone numbers and masked cards used for display purposes (contains first four and last four digits of the card, which is not considered sensitive), were compromised," he told Gadgets 360.
Juspay offers payment gateways for apps including Airtel, Swiggy, Vodafone, Uber, Cred, Ola and Flipkart.
