Airtel Denies Data Breach Claims, Calls Allegations a Desperate Attempt to Tarnish Reputation

Indian Telecom giant Bharti Airtel has issued a statement saying “This is nothing short of a desperate attempt to tarnish Airtel’s reputation”. Bharti Airtel is reported to have been hacked by a Chinese threat actor xenZen who has stolen 375 million numbers, email IDs, and addresses of the users. This data is said to be listed on the dark web for the sale of 37.5 crore.

Airtel itself came forth and wrote on X “there has been a report alleging that Airtel customer data has been compromised. This is nothing short of a desperate attempt to tarnish Airtel’s reputation by vested interests”. The company says that they have done a thorough investigation and can confirm that there has been no breach whatsoever from Airtel systems.

Rahul Sai who is the co-founder and CEO of the CloudSEK wrote on this on Linkein that “the recent Airtel database leak reported on Dark Web News is inaccurate”. As per Rahul, this must be the previously leaked data that the actor is falsely claiming to be the recent one. And he also mentioned ” Threat actors are aggregating this publicly available leaked information and falsely attributing it to telecom databases. It’s important to note that it’s relatively easy to compile a database consisting of first names, last names, and phone numbers belonging to any service provider using publicly available datasets”.
