SPOTLIGHT

A 'Desi' theme this week, first, an information and news site that advertises itself as India's number one online guide for traffic has suffered a data breach for one of their most popular locations. The website has been running since 2007 and they have a "super professional approach". Well, that's what they say. From our understanding the site wasn’t hacked too recently, there's a file in circulation containing over five hundred thousand unique email addresses and hashed passwords.

Another Indian data breach with 100 thousand unique email addresses and various datasets with hashed passwords has been dumped online. The company in question describes itself as a "complaint redressal mobile and web platform." Apparently, it is a "quantum leap in how complaints and grievances are processed." In our words, it's an app for complaining about cleanliness in cities across India.

An interesting update to the Uber and Rockstar data breach. A 17-year old from Oxfordshire has been arrested, A full dox of the hacker was posted on a popular hacking forum. However, we won’t pass comment on that because the age of the hacker and our dislike of doxing.

It's interesting to see the news that Iran has turned off sections of the internet and blocked access to social media platforms. It not surprising but does worry us how much the government has control of such a 'utility' for modern day life.
