As many as 17 million Zomato accounts have been breached, and the data put up for sale on a dark web forum. The hack, first reported by HackRead.com, has been admitted by Zomato, and the company has put up a blog post about the same. In its post, Zomato claims that usernames and passwords were stolen, although the passwords are hashed, meaning they are encrypted into a gibberish form, that has to be cracked separately. Zomato says it uses a “one-way hashing algorithm” for this.
