Popular music streaming site gaana.com was hacked by someone claiming to be from Pakistan. The hacker, who introduced himself as Mak Man from Lahore, published the details of the website’s 10 million users on his Facebook page.
He agreed to remove the data from his FB page and website makan.tk only after the website’s CEO, Satyan Gajwani offered him job as a consultant to fix the loopholes in the IT system of his company.
Gaana.com website was still down at the time of writing this report with the message on the site reading, “site is down due to server maintenance.”
In his reply posted on the hacker’s FB page, Gajwani wrote, First of all, I would like to apologisepersonally if you had shared these reports and we didn’t respond earlier. Totally unacceptable by us, and I’m looking into it.”
He continued, ” And finally, if possible, I’d appreciate if we could hire you as a consultant to help us find any more vulnerabilities across our network.If you are interested, message me directly and I’d be very grateful for your advice.”
Gajwani then took to twitter to assure everyone that there was no loss of data following this hacking and all user details were being reset.
