Gaana.com hacked, Millions of Accounts Compromised

GaanaIn the series of latest hack attacks on popular websites, Indian music portal Gaana.com was hacked and almost ten million account details were compromised when they were posted on a different website. The hacker called MakMan supposedly from Pakistan had posted a link to a popular social media site which had the account details, also containing private information.

Gaana.com has asked its users not to change passwords of their accounts, but rather deactivate them. It also cautioned those who have the same login details for other social sites to change those account passwords. The hack was supposedly done by SQL injection and the hacker also ridiculed the site’s attempt to rectify that parameter. Gaana.com is currently down with a message saying that it was under maintenance activity.
