Hacker Group Shiny Hunters claimed to have leaked user data base of online grocery app Big Basket. According to reports, data of around 2 Cr users were leaked online. However, there is no official confirmation from Big Basket about the data breach.
The database includes BigBasket customer information, including email addresses, SHA1 hashed passwords, addresses, phone numbers, and other assorted information.
In November 2020, BigBasket confirmed to Bloomberg News that they had suffered a data breach after ShinyHunter had previously tried to sell the stolen data in private sales.“There’s been a data breach and we’ve filed a case with the cybercrime police,” BigBasket CEO Hari Menon told Bloomberg News. “The investigators have asked us not to reveal any details as it might hamper the probe.”
