MobiKwik denies data leak allegations

The Gurugram-based payments portal has completely denied all the allegations about a data breach. However, cybersecurity experts have shown numerous evidence over 8.2TB in size of data getting leaked on the Dark Web. The group of hackers who have been allegedly accessing this data for quite a while now has made it accessible through a search engine that suggests some of the leaked data elements. The MobiKwik data breach includes details such as names, phone numbers, email IDs, card details and more. A Twitter user called Rajshekhar Rajaharia mentioned the number of affected users by writing, "11 crore Indian cardholder's cards data including personal details & KYC soft copy has been leaked".

However, it seems that the authorities of MobiKwik have been investigated the matter and in a recent Tweet, the organisation said that - "a media-crazed so-called security researcher has repeatedly over the last week presented concocted files wasting precious time of our organization while desperately trying to grab media attention. We thoroughly investigated his allegations and did not find any security lapses." The organisation also said that it is going to take legal action against the security researcher.
