What EGVAC has to say about the Cowin data leak?
“We continue to take appropriate steps as are necessary, from time to time to ensure that data of the people are safe with Cowin,” R S Sharma, Chairman of the EGVAC, said.
The government stated that the reports circulating about the leak are fake. And there is no breach because the CoWIN platform data has never been exposed to third parties.
On Thursday, there were reports doing rounds that Data Leak Market was offering to sell a database carrying details of 150 million people who had got themselves vaccinated against Covid-19 for $800.
