New Delhi, February 2
The data of around 25 lakh Bharti Airtel subscribers of J&K circle, including Aadhaar numbers, address and date of birth, has reportedly been leaked by hackers, even as the telecom operator denied any breach in its servers.
A sample of the leaked database was shared on Twitter by cyber security researcher Rajshekhar Rajaharia which shows masked details of the subscribers.
Rajaharia also shared a video of an email conversation between Bharti Airtel and the hackers with the name of ‘Red Rabbit Team’.
The video shows that the hackers informed Bharti Airtel about the breach in December and demanded money.
“Hackers have claimed that they have access to pan-India data of Airtel subscribers and they only uploaded a sample of subscribers’ data from J&K. When contacted, a Bharti Airtel spokesperson denied any breach of the company’s servers.. — PTI
