One of India’s most popular music streaming service, Gaana.com, has been reportedly hacked. The site is currently down for maintenance, with no official statement given out yet. A Pakistan-based hacker has claimed responsibility for the hack and claims details of 10 million users including their email address, date of birth and other information has been scraped and made available in a searchable database.

The hacker, Mak Man, claims he can get all details of users by entering an email address. He claims his exploit has given him access to information about 10 million users of the service. Of course, the claims remain unverified at the moment.

We are awaiting an official statement from Times Internet Limited, which owns Gaana. In the meanwhile, if you are registered on Gaana.com, it would be a good idea to change your credentials if you use them anywhere else.

This is what Times Internet Limited CEO Satyan Gajwani has to say about the Gaana.com hack.
