Sosasta spills personal data, plugs leak
Friday, 1st July 2011
Online search giant Groupon's Indian subsidiary, SoSasta, accidentally published the email addresses and passwords of its 3 lakh subscribers last weekend, but has taken corrective measures and said that the issue has been brought under control.
The online discount portal SoSasta.com alerted its subscribers about the security issue and asked them to change their passwords immediately.
SoSasta.com, which was acquired by Groupon in January this year, said that none of the financial information such as credit card, debit card, Netbanking has been compromised since this information is not stored on SoSasta, as per law.
