The data of up to 1.3 million civil servants at the Education and
Culture Ministry have been reportedly breached by unknown hackers.

Cybersecurity researcher and consultant Teguh Aprianto revealed the
cyberattack on Wednesday through his Twitter account @secgron.

Among the leaked data are full names, citizenship identification
numbers (NIK), Family Card numbers, home addresses, mother’s names,
father’s names, marital status, birthplace and date and other personal
information, Teguh wrote.

Data leaks have been rising recently in the country as more companies
and office workers shift to online platforms to work during the
COVID-19 pandemic, creating the opportunity for hackers to breach into
their networks.

Last week, cybersecurity research collective Under the Breach revealed
that the data of around 91 million users of e-commerce platform
Tokopedia and 13 million Bukalapak users had been illegally sold, as
well as the details of passports that belong to 35 million passengers
of Lion Air Group airlines.

The collective also reported that the data of the final voters list
(DPT) in the 2014 presidential election had been stolen from the
General Elections Commission’s (KPU) website in 2013. (aly)
