An anonymous hacker has allegedly released more than lakh rows of Vianet Communications user’s data on the dark web. The leaked data consists of the name, phone number, address and email address of Vianet users.
A tweet made by the hacker led to an Onion link that contained the entire data dump as well as a sample of the data for display.
Following the last major data leak of Foodmandu, this data leak has proven to show the fragile cybersecurity measures adopted by big technology corporations in Nepal.
Note: The link to the data as well as the tweet hasn’t been mentioned in this article in order to limit the damage caused by this leak.
