Paki Hacker Hacked Indian Music Streaming Service Gaana.com
Paki Boy Hacked Indian Famous Music Streaming Service Web Gaana.com and posted all details of over 10 million users on his Facebook fan page.
Gaana.com, Popular Indian music streaming website, was down after a Pakistani hacker publishes member details on his Facebook page.
Indian Popular music streaming service Gaana.com, which has over 7.5 million monthly visitors, has been comprised by a Paki hacker and its user information database is now exposed.
The hacker, who goes by the moniker Mak Man and appears to be based in Lahore, Pakistan, posted a link to a searchable database of Gaana user details on his Facebook page. Enter a user’s email address and it spits out their full name, email address, MD5-hashed password, date of birth Facebook and Twitter profiles and more.
The hack appears to be a SQL injection-based exploit of Gaana’s systems, but the intention behind it is unknown. The database shows more than 12.5 million users are currently registered on Gaana.
Hacker also posted Screen Shots of the service’s admin panel.
Mak Man (Hacker) Said: “I here by ensure that no financial info was accessed during the hack of Gaana.com. database was so huge that I did not even bother looking, and no info was dumped and stored locally, not even a single row. the hack was “just a POC (proof of concept) to spotlight the issue that it’s possible to grab details directly from their dbms (Database management systems) and i repeat again info wasn’t stored locally.”
Satyan Gajwani, the CEO of Times internet, which runs Gaana.com, offered a deal to the Mak Man (hacker) for fixing loopholes in the IT system of company.
It’s worrying that an online service from one of India’s biggest internet companies (Times Internet) is vulnerable to attacks like this.
