CoWin portal secure, asserts Centre, labeling data leak reports as "mischievous"

The Centre denies reports of a data breach in the CoWin portal, stating that the portal is completely safe with safeguards for data privacy.

Sensitive personal information of politicians and bureaucrats was allegedly leaked on social media platform Telegram, with South Asia Index reporting on leaked Aadhaar, voter ID, and passport numbers.

The Union Health Ministry has requested CERT-In, the government's computer emergency response team, to investigate the issue and submit a report.
