What If The Aadhar Details got hacked or hijacked?Do you feel that this is possible to go into the database & stole the demographic identities & also at the same time can misuse for their own ways?
We have often heard of the term "Hacking", and is understood as an unauthorized access to or control over computer network security systems or to the database for some illicit purposes. We have incidences wherein the official sites are intruded in the past. At a time when an increasing number of Indians are going digital and doing transactions online, these hacking incidents expose the country's cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
Few times back we had the news that during April 2015, the army's Principal Comptroller of Defence Accounts Officers (PCDAO) website was reportedly hacked having personal and financial information of army personnel. In another incidence, Indian Space Research Organization's marketing arm Antrix saw its website hacked in July 2015 wherein the users were redirected to a buying portal while trying to access the website. Later on, there was a 404 error on the web page. No organization or hacker took responsibility but Chinese hackers were.
Likewise we can list our many more incidences.
While as per the Indian official, the Aadhar data is totally secure from hacking and can only be accessed by bribing an official, makes itself left with the possibilities of intrusions. In the latest, the CBSE papers were leaked & the culprits were found to be one of the members themselves.
So what if the Aadhar data are accessed & misinterpreted the information therein?
