Nepal’s no 1 online food delivery service provider company Foodmandu survived cyberattack last night (Saturday, 7th March). Hackers unauthorisedly accessed personal details of around 50,000 customers, including their names, addresses, emails, and contact numbers.
A twitter handle named Mr.Mugger twitted saying dumped 50 thousand data related to Foodmandu’s users and a link associated with the data. Hackers also published the details online later this afternoon.
“The hackers learned about a small shortcoming and attacked us, we came to know about it only one hour later,” says Manohar Adhikari, founder of Foodmandu.
The hacker claims that they accessed 50,000 customers’ data but the company claims only 30,000 have been compromised.
After the incident, Foomandu has released an official statement saying that the password and the databases are safe. Hackers only extracted certain users’ data through the web. In the statement, Foodmandu has also confirmed that they are working with the Cyber Crime Division of Government to apprehend the attackers and take down the data that has been uploaded.
The statement also says ” The investigation is underway and we hope to resolve it at the earliest”
Despite this attack, there is no impact on the company’s commercial operations.
