Calling it “pretend”, the Centre on Thursday dismissed media reviews of an alleged knowledge leak of database of about 15 crore Indians who registered themselves on the CoWIN portal for Covid-19 vaccination drive. “There have been some unfounded media reviews on the CoWIN platform being hacked. Prima facie, these reviews seem like pretend,” a press release issued by the Union Health Ministry mentioned.
Dr R S Sharma, Chairman of the Empowered Group on Vaccine Administration (Co-WIN) mentioned, “Our consideration has been drawn in direction of the information circulating on social media in regards to the alleged hacking of Co-WIN system. In this connection, we want to state that Co-WIN shops all of the vaccination knowledge in a secure and safe digital surroundings. No Co-WIN knowledge is shared with any entity outdoors the Co-WIN surroundings. The knowledge being claimed as having been leaked similar to geo-location of beneficiaries, is just not even collected at Co-WIN.”
Meanwhile, the Union Health Ministry and the Empowered Group on Vaccine Administration (EGVAC) are getting the matter investigated by the Computer Emergency Response Team of Ministry of Electronics and Information (*15*) (MietY).
This got here after a Twitter consumer claimed that “Dark Leak Market” have the database of about 15 crore Indians who registered themselves on the CoWIN system.
