Database Of 91 Lakh Zoomcar Users Sold On Dark Web

An independent security researcher has discovered a database of 9.1 Mn Zoomcar users being sold on the dark web by an anonymous hacker. A database with details of 36 Lakh users is being sold for just $1-$2, whereas the complete database is available for $300 (INR 22K). Even without the passwords, email address and phone numbers of the users are a privacy risk to users. We validated the phone numbers from this screenshot against Zoomcar’s login page, which showed that these numbers and email IDs are indeed registered on the platform. We also verified the validity of this process by entering the phone numbers of friends who are current users of Zoomcar.
