Hacker puts BigBaskets 2 crore customers data on sale for 30 lakh rupees; BigBasket confirms data breach


The festive season in India has begun and even in the times of COVID-19 pandemic, people have been rushing out to get their hands on the best offers in the market.
Amid the festivities, BigBasket (an online grocery store) faced a massive data breach.

The e-commerce store allegedly leaked personal data of its 20 million users (two crore). According to Cyble ( cyber intelligence firm), the leaked data consisted of sensitive information such as customer name, email ID, phone numbers, passwords and much more.
A web hacker got his hands on this data, who then allegedly put it up for sale on the dark web.

Looked like this was one offer, for which neither Bigbasket nor it’s customer asked for!
When the research team of Cyble was on its routine monitoring on the Internet, they came across a database, which was being sold for nearly 30 lakh rupees. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that it belonged to BigBasket and had sensitive information of its customers. The SQL file of 15 GB contained the data of nearly 20 million users with specifics such as OTPs, Pin codes, DOBs, shipping locations, IP addresses and much more.

We revealed the names and the address of the people who have been exposed on the web? said Cyble. The company continued to say that they could not find any financial data of the users; looked like it was safe and the hacker could not access it.
The hacker failed to procure Debit and Credit card details of the users; still the degree of the breach was high? Cyble stated in a blog post.

After this incident BigBasket responded by saying that they learned about this breach a few days ago; their team was assessing the length of the breach and they were prepared to deal with this situation.
Commenting on the data breach, BigBasket in a statement, A few days ago, we learned about a potential data breach at BigBasket and are evaluating the extent of the breach and authenticity of the claim in consultation with cybersecurity experts and finding immediate ways to contain it. We have also lodged a complaint with the Cyber Crime Cell in Bengaluru and intend to pursue this vigorously to bring the culprits to book.

We reached out to the Cyber Crime Cell in Bengaluru and filed a complaint; there is nothing to panic, our team is looking into it? said Bigbasket.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
