Dunzo suffers data breach
Google-backed Indian hyperlocal delivery service Dunzo suffered a data breach that left customer data including email IDs and phone numbers exposed.
"Recently, our team identified a security breach that involved unauthorized access to one of our databases. While we are still investigating, we believe it is our responsibility to inform you as soon as possible" Dunzo said, however the company later said that it has “addressed and resolved the issue” for all its users.
Dunzo has 75,000 stores on its platform and the number of deliveries from 2018 to 2019 have grown 2.5-3X. The company was serving about 2.5 million deliveries but Covid-19 pandemic impacted the volume by 25%.
