Indonesia’s BRI Life probes reported data leak of two million users

BRI Life, the insurance arm of Indonesia’s Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), said that it was looking into reports that unidentified hackers had posted the personal information of over two million of its clients for sale.

According to Reuters, Hudson Rock, a cybercrime monitoring service, discovered evidence that numerous computers belonging to BRI and BRI Life workers had been hacked.

BRI Life later stated that their investigation was being carried out with the help of an independent cyber security team to undertake digital tracing and take the required actions to strengthen data safety for policyholders.

BRI Life’s corporate secretary, Ade Nasution, claimed the business was doing everything it could to secure the data of its policyholders, and that the company had never given personal information to any “irresponsible parties.”

An anonymous user stated they were offering a collection of 460,000 documents gathered from the user data of over two million BRI Life subscribers for $7,000 in a post on the RaidForums website on Tuesday.

The message came with a 30-minute video of the documents, which contained bank account information, copies of Indonesian identity cards, and taxpayer information.
