India’s biggest online marketplace has been hacked by cybercriminals who stole the personal details of more than 1 million customers.
The latest victim is the popular online marketplace, B2B, which allows users to buy and sell goods, but also sells its services on the Internet, such as virtual assistant bots and e-commerce platforms.
B2B has already been hacked multiple times by cyber criminals, and in May, an unknown group of hackers targeted its services again.
The company’s chief executive officer, Deepak Duggal, said in May that the company had started working with law enforcement agencies and other agencies to investigate the hackers, and that B2G services were not affected.
The cybercrimbation group behind the attack also gained access to B2Bs internal database and sent phishing emails to customers, prompting them to delete their accounts, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
The attackers also made access to its customer service system and customer-specific accounts, which account for a majority of B2b’s revenue, and targeted other businesses.
The attackers also stole customer information for more than 100,000 B2BS employees, who were not included in the breach.
B 2B did not say how many people were affected, or how many accounts had been compromised.
The cybersecurity firm Veracode said it had received more than 400 reports from affected customers, but it did not have the exact number.
The company said it was investigating the breach, which occurred on May 17.
The attack came amid heightened security concerns in India, where the country’s cybercrime rate is among the highest in the world.
