Aadhaar data leak

So far, 2018 has not been off to a flying start and it just keeps getting worse! It was only the fourth day of the New Year and Twitter woke up to the news that the Aadhaar data leak will affect BILLIONS.

Yes you read that right. Everyone in India who has an Aadhaar card to their name is the victim of the Aadhaar data leak, and guess what? No one paid millions or billions or even thousands for it. What did it take? 500 INR that is all.

Outlook reports, “According to the newspaper, its reporter purchased a service by anonymous sellers on WhatsApp and paid Rs 500 via Paytm to an agent of the group running a racket. The agent then created a “gateway” for the reporter and gave a login ID and password, thus giving unrestricted access to details, including name, address, postal code (PIN), photo, phone number and email, of more than 1 billion Aadhaar numbers submitted to the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), the Aadhaar issuing body.” This shit, IS SCARY.

So, obviously as soon as word got out about the Aadhaar data leak for merely 500 INR, Twitter took no time to reprimand the Government, and their decision to make Aadhaar necessary, and also link it with bank accounts.

What are your thoughts on this story state of affairs?
