Data of 23 crore users leaked
Recently, data of about 230 million users of Instagram, TicketLock, and YouTube was leaked. According to Forbes by security researchers, user data was spread across multiple datasets and profile records were snatched from Instagram. Among the data leaked, 4.2 crore Ticketok users belong to it and 40 million are from YouTube users. The rest of the data is from the Instagram user. One of the five records included the user’s telephone number or email ID, profile name, full real name, profile photo, account details, number of followers and likes, etc.
Bischoff said in the report, “Although the data is publicly accessible, it is highly valuable due to its leaking as a database.” According to the researchers, ‘Leaked data points of a company called Deep Social were banned by both Facebook and Instagram in 2018 after rushing users’ profile data. According to a Facebook spokesperson, ‘stealing people’s information from Instagram is a clear violation of our policies. We blocked Deep Social’s access to our platform in June 2018 and sent them a legal notice. ‘
