Clubhouse, denied the data of 1.3 million service users application the audio discussion was leaked.
“No, this (information) is misleading and wrong, this is a clickbait article (fishing with a controversial title), we are not hacked. The data (in the forum) is data available on the public profile of our application. So our answer is clearly no.” , “explained Clubhouse CEO Paul Davison, Sunday (11/4).
Previously, on Sunday (11/4) Cyber News reported on the leakage of Clubhouse user data in an online hacker forum.
The data is displayed in a SQL database format containing the user’s account identity, real name, Clubhouse username, Twitter and Instagram accounts of the user. However, it is reported that there is no sensitive data such as credit card numbers.
Selain Clubhouse, Cyber News also mentioned that data on 500 million LinkedIn users have also been published online. However, the company which is owned by Microsoft said that no personal data of users had been leaked to the public.
This news comes days after the discovery of a data leak of half a billion (533 million) Facebook users. This leaked Facebook data contains the user’s phone number, date of birth, location, email address and long name.
Clubhouse’s popularity rose at the beginning of this year. Currently the application is still in beta, so users who want to use this service must receive an invitation from users who have used Clubhouse first.
This application is only available for iOS users only, although Clubhouse currently has more than 10 million downloads, as reported The Verge.
Clubhouse’s popularity has led Twitter, LinkedIn, Discord, Spotify and Slack to develop similar features. Facebook is also said to be preparing an audio discussion feature similar to Clubhouse.
