Indian music streaming service Gaana.com hacked, millions of users´ details exposed
Blog Category: Tech & Information


Indian music streaming service Gaana, which has over 7.5 million monthly visitors, has been comprised by a 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.

With user details exposed, it may not do much good to simply change your Gaana password, as it will reflect in the hacker´s database. You´re better off deactivating your account until the issue is resolved, and changing your email, Facebook and Twitter passwords if they´re the same as on Gaana right away.

A hacker from Pakistan claims to have hacked into the user database of popular music streaming website Gaana.com. `Mak Man´ announced the exploit via his Facebook page and has also uploaded what is claimed to be the entire database of Gaana.com users containing details of over 10 million users.

The hacker also claimed to have gained access to Gaana´s backend panel and posted purported screenshots of the same. The development was first reported by The Geek Byte.

If you enter the email address of a registered Gaana.com user, you can access their full name, email address, MD5-encrypted password, Facebook, and Twitter profiles and other details including date of birth. We would advise users from entering their email address on an unknown third-party website, even if it´s to check if their user details have been exposed - just consider your account as compromised and act accordingly.

If you are a registered Gaana.com user and use the same password anywhere else, we advise you to change the password across all websites. Gaana.com has not confirmed the hack at the time of filing this report, though the website is "down due to server maintenance."
