Data of more than 7 million BHIM site users leaked: Report


BENGALURU: More than 7 million user records on the CSC BHIM website were exposed in a data leak, Israeli cybersecurity website vpnMentor, which reported the breach to Indian authorities in April, said in a blog post on Monday. The breach was plugged by CSC e-Governance Services, which developed the portal, on May 22, the cybersecurity firm said.

The website was used in a campaign to sign up users and business merchants for the BHIM payments app, which has been developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).

“There has been no data compromise at BHIM App … NPCI follows a high level of security and an integrated approach to protect its infrastructure,” it said. The personal records were from February 2019, vpnMentor said.
