Cybercriminals have posted personal details of 29 million job-seeking Indians for free at one of the hacker sites on the dark web, according to online technology company Cybele.
The company had recently revealed hacking of Facebook and Sequoia-funded Indian education technology firm Unacademy, the news agency reported.
“29.1 million Indian job seekers’ details leaked in deep web for free. We usually see this sort of leaks all the time, but this time, the message header got our attention as it included a lot of personal details where most of the things are generally static such as education, address, etc,” Cybele said in a blog on Friday.
Folders in the name of some of the leading job websites in India also appeared on the screenshot posted by Cybele but the company was investigating the source of the leak at the time of writing this report.
