NDTV: Database Safe But There’s A New Leak. 1.3 Lakh Aadhaar, Bank Details Out. “The UIDAI, the body that governs Aadhaar, has told the Supreme Court that its database cannot be breached or used to profile citizens. A new data leak suggests that there may be no need for hackers to go that far. Government departments are already using the unique identification number to aggregate data from different departments, complete with the individual’s religion, caste, bank account numbers and their exact location. Still worse, some of them have placed this private information on its websites for anyone to see.”
