How to delete your Mobikwik account following the big data leak?

Recently, one of the Indian-based digital payment platforms, Mobikwik went through a massive data leak. The news flashed soon after the popular Acer ransomware attack. According to many reports, sensitive information about 3.5 million Mobikwik users leaked. The leaked info was connected to the dark web. Experts are now calling it the largest “KYC data leak in history.”

How was the breach discovered?

Well, the breach was detected back in February by a researcher named Rajshekhar Rajaharia. Mobikwik was quick enough to deny it.

“11 Crore Indian Cardholder’s Cards Data Including personal details & KYC soft copy (PAN, Aadhar, etc) allegedly leaked from a company’s Server in India. 6 TB KYC Data and 350GB compressed MySQL dump,”

The news was being circulated with an authenticated screenshot where users found their secured information wandering on the dark web. Reports state that the leaker created a portal where 8.2TB worth of user data was pushed through on the dark web. On the portal, one can access and gather information about any Mobikwik user via their email or just the phone number. The sensitive data includes Aadhar Card data, passwords, GPS location, IP address and so on.
