Food ordering app Indolj has come under scrutiny following claims made by various news outlets about a data breach. Hackers purportedly gained access to a private company’s database used by restaurants, leading to concerns of compromised customer data being offered for sale online; however, Indolj has vehemently denied any such breach.
Indolj Respond to Data Breach Allegations
Indolj addressed the allegations by conducting a thorough examination of the sample data provided by the hackers. The company determined that the data records in question did not align with the current transactional records of customers on the Indolj platform. Importantly, Indolj clarified that it does not store any credit card or payment-related information, making it impossible for customer payment data to be compromised through its platform. In a press release, Indolj stated its commitment to safeguarding customer data and emphasized its dedication to robust security measures.
Cybersecurity Firm’s Insights
Contrary to initial concerns, cybersecurity firm CTM360 has shed light on the situation. They reported that the data leak in question is, in fact, an old incident dating back to 2022. It has recently resurfaced on the dark web but does not pose a current threat. A forensic analysis of the sample data shared by the hackers confirmed that these records do not match the current transactional data of Indolj’s customers. This revelation provides important context and suggests that the data breach claims may be based on outdated information.
Indolj has taken this opportunity to reassure its customers about the security of their data. The company highlighted its implementation of rigorous security measures and adherence to industry best practices. According to the food ordering app, their dedicated team of experts continually monitors and updates security protocols to stay ahead of evolving threats.
