Route Mobile is investigating claims on the data leak
Route Mobile (earlier known as Routesms Solutions LTD.) is a cloud communications platform as a service (CPaaS) company based in India. The company is headquartered in Mumbai, India and has presence in more than 15 locations across Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America.
The company claimed that data of its customers is safe and its cyber security team is investigating the matter.
According to cyber security experts, data of companies like Tata Communications, Bharti Airtel and DBS Bank have been leaked due to the alleged breach in Route Mobile''s system.
"Tata Communications suffers data leak, "Cybercriminals" claim to have sold access to company’s servers, over 50GB data still up for sale on Darknet Forums for USD 9k," Pifi Technologies Chief Technology Officer Indra Dhaon shared in a post.
Rajshekhar Rajaharia, a cyber security researcher said the data does not seem to have been leaked from Tata Communications but the alleged breach appears to have taken place at the system of its technical vendor Route Mobile.
Tata Communications said there is no consequence of the alleged incident either on the company or its customers. For Tata Communications, security for our customers is of paramount importance.
The company said, our global information security team has investigated the matter. We believe there is no consequence neither for Tata Communications nor for any of our customers. We have already issued legal notices to the concerned parties. We reiterate our commitment to ensure the safety of our customers data," Tata Communications said in a statement.
The hackers have also allegedly uploaded on the dark web transaction message data of Airtel. The sample data shared was around four years old. Data of DBS Bank allegedly leaked online shows banking transaction messages and one-time passwords sent from the bank to customers.
As of today, we can confirm that Route Mobile''s systems are secure and there is no evidence to suggest that this has any impact on Route Mobile customers'' personal data, Route Mobile said. The company further said it takes all data security claims seriously and has engaged a third party Cyber Security Consultant to independently verify and audit our findings.
