Airtel Users Details Leaked: Hackers are outraged once again. This time it was on the personal information of Airtel customers. In one fell swoop, 25 lakh personal details were stolen and put up for sale online.
Going into the details, some hackers have put up for sale on Netflix the gender details along with the mobile numbers of the people using the Aerial Tel SIM, their Aadhaar number and place of residence. It is noteworthy that the hackers who did not stop with this said that they had the information of all the Airtel users in India and would sell that information as well. The whole affair was revealed by Rajasekhar Rajaharya, an internet security researcher. The hackers who stole large amounts of user data seem to have blackmailed Airtel’s security team with $ 3500 worth of bitcoins. However, the deal failed and the information was put up for sale. A website has been specially designed for this purpose and some of the information of the users has been posted. However, this information is collected by hackers through sources other than Airtel’s servers. It seems that a large amount of user information from Jammu and Kashmir has been leaked. Rajasekhar informed about this and posted some screen shots on his Twitter account. It remains to be seen how Airtel will react to this.
