Cybersecurity research firm CyberX9 claimed in its report that the call data records of 20.6 million postpaid Vi customers had been leaked due to vulnerabilities in the company’s systems.
The report alleged that data leaked included the duration of the call, the duration of the call, the subscriber’s full name, address, SMS and roaming information.
However, Vi denied the claim and said there was none
The company said it learned of a “possible vulnerability in its billing communications” and that it was “fixed immediately” and that a thorough forensic analysis was being conducted to “confirm there was no data breach”.
Vodafone Idea said it is carrying out “regular checks” and audits to strengthen its security infrastructure.
However, CyberX9 said the company’s claim that they conducted a forensic audit is absurd.
According to CyberX9, call logs and other data of millions of Vi customers have been leaked over the past two years, which hackers had access to.
