“We are getting the matter examined. However, prima facie it appears that the alleged leak is not related to Co-WIN as we neither collect any information on address or the Covid-19 status of beneficiaries,” it posted on Twitter.

The government server was subjected to the alleged data breach, with names, phone numbers, addresses, and Covid-19 results of thousands of people being leaked online and put on sale on the Raid Forums website. 

The website claimed to have access to personal data belonging to 20,000 people.
