11 Sep India’s Aadhaar Software Compromised by Software Patch
Two Indian analysts and three international experts had reportedly confirmed to Huffington Post that the software for the world’s largest identity database had been compromised by a patch that disables its critical security features.
The patch, which can be used to generate Aadhaar numbers, is said to readily be for sale to anyone for just around $35. The patch also does not require much technical knowledge to use.
The experts said that the patch can be used to bypass critical security features, disable the enrolment software’s built-in GPS security feature, and reduce the sensitivity of the enrolment software’s iris-recognition system.
