There seems to have been one other breach in Indonesia, and this time passport data of 9 million foreigners which have utilized for visas to enter has leaked per studies in native media (entry right here).

Knowledge leaks in Indonesia will not be uncommon, and not too long ago there was one other case of 34 million passport data traded on the darkish net.

Excerpt from Suarasurabay (Google Translate):

The Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kemenkominfo) is investigating data relating to the alleged leak of 9 million visa information for overseas residents (foreigners) who entered Indonesia.

Hacker Bjorka is suspected of buying and selling foreigners’ private information. In his weblog, it’s acknowledged that the information being traded is within the type of visas from foreigners to enter Indonesia issued by the Directorate Common of Immigration, Ministry of Regulation and Human Rights.

“This database include foreigners visa to enter Indonesia issued by Directorate Common of Immigration of Indonesia,” tulis Bjorka.


Sadly, information leaks will not be unusual, and I are inclined to get notices month-to-month about one other breach the place a few of my data has been uncovered (normally my e mail deal with).

Authorities leaks will not be as frequent, however having your (possible mine, too) passport data used to enter Indonesia traded on the darkish net isn’t good.
