One of the leading Internet Service Providers (ISP), Vianet’s user data has been compromised last night leaking user details of around 160,000 user’s data. The breached data is stored on the dark web. The breach is to be confirmed officially by Vianet.
A hacker with twitter name ‘नरपिचास’ posted a post with the onion link leading to the leaked data. Currently, the twitter account is restricted. A special browser such as ‘Tor’ is required to view contents posted in a self-hosted network with an onion link.
The leaked data includes the user’s email address, phone number, and address.
Recently, Foodmandu’s data leak had warmed the situation and here is another similar incident. Vianet itself had faced such an issue in early 2019.
Following this unexpected situation, we, the ICT Frame team would like to request all the Vianet users to change the password of your account.
