Srinagar: Kashmir University on Wednesday said it is studying the alleged breach of personal data of one million students.
There are reports that the University has become a victim of cyber attack and personal data of its one million students was hacked and put on sale. The alleged database has been put on sale for $250 on a hacking forum.
“The alleged breach is being analysed. As per preliminary analysis, it is found that the data is unmodified,” a university spokesperson said.
“Any breach on data read (which is already accessible in public domain) is being analysed in-depth and depending upon the analysis the university will take further action and take an appropriate legal recourse,” he said.
