Dhoni’s phone gets flooded with messages after number leaked on social media

After CSC e-governance services of India leaked personal details including phone number of the former India cricket team captain, skipper MS Dhoni after he approached them for getting an Aadhaar Card, the cricketer’s number is flooded with the messages from unknown people and fans warning him to get his info removed from social media.

Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Singh after bringing the blunder into IT Minister RS Prasad’s notice, now shared some screenshots of the messages and warned people not to share mobile numbers, especially one linked with the bank account.

“Guys make sure never to share your phone no and email address esp linked to bank accounts.#security,” she wrote on twitter.

Actually, on Tuesday, CSC e-governance services of India posted a photo in which Dhoni was seen verifying his fingerprints to avail the Aadhaar services.  However, with the picture of Dhoni, the official Twitter account of CSC also posted his Aadhaar registration details – something that terribly irked Dhoni’s wife Sakshi.

While this was not some deliberate breach of data, the incident shows the uncaring attitude of Indian government agencies towards privacy and private data.

The blunder over Dhoni’s privacy began with a tweet by @CSCeGOV. “Former India Cricket Captain @MSdhoni updated his Aadhaar details with a home visit by a CSC VLE. A fan moment for Ahsan Ali @rsprasad,” tweets the agency.

As IT minister was tagged in the tweet, Prasad also tweeted, “VLE of @CSCegov_ delivers service to @msdhoni. Legendary cricketer’s digital hook (shot).”

But then, in no time, Sakshi jumped into the picture pointing out that along with her husband’s photo, his private details were also leaked. “@rsprasad @CSCegov_ is there any privacy left??? Information of adhaar card including application is made public property!#disappointed,” she tweeted.

When Prasad looked puzzled, she clarified, “@rsprasad Sir personal information filled in form is leaked!” Eventually, Prasad promised that the action will be taken against people who leaked the private information.
