True Caller Leak: Data available on dark web at Rs. 1.5 lakh

In another case of lackluster security, personal information of several TrueCaller users has been spotted on sale. The data was discovered on the dark web by a cybersecurity analyst who later informed the Economic Times. However, weirdly enough, the Sweden-based caller-identity company has denied that its database has been breached by anyone. The analyst, who has not been named in the report, claimed that TrueCaller users' data has been selling on the dark web marketplaces. The database discovered on the dark web had a particular batch for Indian users, who make up more than half of TrueCaller's global user-base of 250 million. This 'India-specific' database, the analyst said, was selling at a little over Rs. 1.5 lakh.
