Share via:

PokerBaazi, India’s largest online poker platform, clarified on Monday that its server did not expose any real user data, following a cyber security study that claimed the platform suffered a significant security lapse after an internal database containing sensitive user information was left exposed online for more than two months.

Security researcher Anurag Sen told portal XposedOrNot that the exposure was “due to a misconfiguration in the system and could be easily accessed by anyone with knowledge of the database’s IP address”. According to Sen, the exposed data was more than 6GB in size and growing. “We would like to clarify that there is no data breach and our server did not expose any real data pertaining to users,” a PokerBaazi spokesperson told IANS.
