Information of over 100 million debit and credit card users has been leaked online from payments processor Juspay. Juspay processes payments for companies like Amazon, Swiggy, MakeMyTrip among others. The leak includes the user’s names, contact information and information related to their debit and credit cards.
Sonit Jain, CEO of GajShield Infotech says, “In the verge of becoming a digital economy from a country that prefers cash transaction, players like just pay play a very important role in creating trust in digital mode of payment within the existing and target userbase. Such incident, if confirmed, irrespective of data’s sensitivity leaves a negative impression over such digital payment platforms. Also with the level of personal data like Name, Date of Birth, Phone Number, PAN Card details interlinked with each other, a simple data like Email ID and Phone Number which may not look sensitive may turn out to be lethal means of financial fraud at personal level If fallen in wrong hands.”
