Cyber security experts raise alarm over possible data breach involving millions of Malaysians


Concerns have been raised over a possible weak spot in Malaysia’s cyber security system, which could potentially grant unscrupulous parties access to the data of millions of Malaysians.

The breach allegedly came in the form of an Open Systems Intelligence (OSINT) tool that is available on the publicly accessible Internet, which in theory would allow those with enough know-how access to people’s personal data.

Experts claimed that while personal data of individuals had previously been available on the ‘dark web’, making the information easily procured on ‘clearnet’, or publicly accessible Internet, is a different ball game altogether. The alleged data breach was highlighted by a social media user who goes by “Cyber Guardian” via the Twitter handle @Radz1112.
