CEO of Technisanct, Nandakishore Harikumar.

This information was discovered by an India-based cybersecurity startup, Technisanct, who has notified the Computer Emergency Response Team in each country.

“The results are alarming as it seems no one is aware that such a huge volume of payment card details – including the CVV and PIN – are available. Anyone with access to those details could cause financial losses to the owner of the cards”, mentioned CEO Nandakishore Harikumar.

Card holders are advised to activate 2-factor authentication (mobile TAC) as soon as possible.

Individuals whose cards do not require TAC / mobile authentication for transactions to pass through are advised to terminate the cards to avoid any potential loss of money.
