  2. A new data leak hits Aadhaar, India's national ID database Exclusive: The data leak affects potentially every Indian citizen subscribed to the database. By Zack Whittaker March 23, 2018 -- 20:00 GMT (13:00 PDT) India's national ID database has been hit by yet another major security lapse. Known as Aadhaar, the government ID database is packed with identity and biometric information -- like fingerprints and iris scans -- on more than 1.1 billion registered Indian citizens, official figures show. Anyone in the database can use their data -- or their thumbprint -- to open a bank account, buy a cellular SIM card, enroll in utilities, and even receive state aid or financial assistance. Even companies, like Amazon and Uber, can tap into the Aadhaar database to identify their customers. Enrolling in the database isn't mandatory, but Indian citizens who aren't subscribed are unable to access even basic government services. Other countries are set to follow India's lead. But the system has been dogged with security problems -- including, according to India's Tribune, a data breach. India's ruling Bharatiya Janata political party later called the report "fake news." Now, the database is leaking information on every Aadhaar holder, a security researcher has told ZDNet. A data leak on a system run by a state-owned utility company can allow anyone to download private information on all Aadhaar holders, exposing their names, their unique 12-digit identity numbers, and information about services they are connected to, such as their bank details and other private information. Karan Saini, a New Delhi-based security researcher who found the vulnerable endpoint, said that anyone with an Aadhaar number is affected. Yet the Indian authorities have done nothing to fix the flaw. ZDNet spent more than a month trying to contact the Indian authorities, but nobody responded to our repeated emails. We later contacted the Indian Consulate in New York and alerted Devi Prasad Misra, consul for trade and customs. Over two weeks, this issue was explained in detail, and we responded to many follow-up questions. A week passed, and the vulnerability was still not fixed. At the start of this week, we told the consul that we would publish our story on Friday and requested comment from the Indian government. The consul did not respond to that last email. At the time of publishing, the affected system is still online and vulnerable. For that reason, we're withholding specific details about the vulnerability until it's fixed. (Once it has been fixed, we will update the story with additional details.) The utility provider, which we are not naming, has access to the Aadhaar database through an API, which the company relies on to check a customer's status and verify their identity. But because the company hasn't secured the API, it's possible to retrieve private data on each Aadhaar holder, regardless of whether they're a customer of the utility provider or not. The API's endpoint -- a URL that we are not publishing -- has no access controls in place, said Saini. The affected endpoint uses a hardcoded access token, which, when decoded, translates to "INDAADHAARSECURESTATUS," allowing anyone to query Aadhaar numbers against the database without any additional authentication. Saini also found that the API doesn't have any rate limiting in place, allowing an attacker to cycle through every permutation -- potentially trillions -- of Aadhaar numbers and obtain information each time a successful result is hit. He explained that it would be possible to enumerate Aadhaar numbers by cycling through combinations, such as 1234 5678 0000 to 1234 5678 9999. "An attacker is bound to find some valid Aadhaar numbers there which could then be used to find their corresponding details," he said. And because there is no rate limiting, Saini said he could send thousands of requests each minute -- just from one computer. When Saini ran a handful of Aadhaar numbers (from friends who gave him permission) through the endpoint, the server's response included the Aadhaar holder's full name and their consumer number -- a unique customer number used by that utility provider. The response also reveals information on connected bank accounts, said Saini. Screenshots seen by ZDNet reveal details about which bank that person uses -- though, no other banking information was returned. That seems to contradict a tweet by India's Unique Identification Authority (UIDAI), the government department that administers the Aadhaar database, which said: "Aadhaar database does not keep any information about bank accounts." Another tweet on the same day by Ravi Shankar Prasad, India's minister for electronics and information technology, also said: "Aadhaar does not save the details of your bank account." The endpoint doesn't just pull data on the utility provider's customers; the API allows access to Aadhaar holders' information who have connections with other utility companies, as well. "From the requests that were sent to check for a rate limiting issue and determine the possibility of stumbling across valid Aadhaar numbers, I have found that this information is not retrieved from a static database or a one-off data grab, but is clearly being updated -- from as early as 2014 to mid 2017," he told ZDNet. "I cannot speculate whether it is UIDAI that is providing this information to [the utility provider], or if the banks or gas companies are, but it seems that everyone's information is available, with no authentication -- no rate limit, nothing." That data on the face of it may not be seen as sensitive as leaked or exposed biometric data, but it nevertheless contradicts the Indian government's claims that the database is secure. India's former attorney general Mukul Rohtagi once said that a previous leak of Aadhaar numbers is "much ado about nothing." But access to Aadhaar numbers and corresponding names increases the risk of identity theft, or could lead to impersonation. It's long been believed that identity theft is one of the biggest issues faced by both UIDAI and Aadhaar number holders. It's been reported that linking Aadhaar numbers to SIM cards has led to stolen money and fraud. The controversy surrounding the Aadhaar database has been ongoing. A month ahead of the Indian election in 2014, would-be prime minister Narendra Modi called the database's security into question. "On Aadhaar, neither the team that I met nor PM could answer my [questions] on security threat it can pose. There is no vision, only political gimmick," said Modi in a tweet. Now, his government is currently defending the identity scheme in front of the country's Supreme Court. Critics have called the database unconstitutional. Until the court rules on the case, subscribing to the database won't be mandatory for Indian citizens. But that might not be much solace for those whose information has been already collected. SOURCE
  3. Organic chemist Asima Chatterjee paved the way for Indian women in science and improved the odds of survival for patients with cancer, epilepsy, and malaria. Born in 1917, when India was still a British colony, she grew up in a relatively comfortable middle-class family in Calcutta, where she was encouraged to pursue an education -- although it's unlikely that anyone expected her to pursue it as far as she did. Chatterjee completed a Masters degree in organic chemistry at the University of Calcutta in 1938, and six years later she became the first woman in India to earn a doctorate in science. Around that time, she founded the Department of Chemistry at Lady Brabourne College, a women's college affiliated with the University of Calcutta. Throughout her long and prolific career, Chatterjee's research focused on chemical compounds produced by plants native to the Indian subcontinent. Her work on a group of chemical compounds from the Madagascar periwinkle plant, called vinca alkaloids, contributed to the development of drugs used in chemotherapy to slow the growth of some types of cancer by preventing cells from dividing. Other research led to an anti-convulsive drug called Ayush-56, which helped treat epilepsy, and several anti-malarial drugs. She published around 400 papers and several volumes on Indian medicinal plants and their chemistry. Chatterjee died on November 22, 2006. Today marks her 100th birthday. < Here > If interested, you may also like to read, "Asima Chatterjee: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know".
  4. Someone high up in Indian politics with something to hide? The Indian government has blocked the Internet Archive in the country - without prior warning or explanation. Users in Delhi and Bangalore, particularly those using the Airtel ISP, are being greeted by the following message when attempting to access the Wayback Machine: "Your requested URL has been blocked as per the directions received from the Department of Telecommunications, Government of India. Please contact administrator for more information." Unfortunately, no one at the ISP seems to know either, or if they do, they aren't telling. For the uninitiated, the Wayback Machine has been taking snapshots of the internet for the past two decades and more, and can, therefore, show previous versions of web pages, of news stories and even revive the last known configuration of a web page long since offline. In total it is estimated it allows users to access 302 billion cached web pages. In the past, India has been responsible for blocking sites including Github and Wordpress (as well as the predictable stuff like porn sites). More recently it blocked video sites such as Vimeo and Daily Motion for ‘failing to control' access to what it described as "Jihadi propaganda". Some experts have speculated that the ban is because the Internet Archive allows citizens to access documents, since removed, from the Aadhaar citizen ID program (sort of like an NI number in the UK) managed by the Unique Identification Authority of India, and heavily criticised for being light on security and heavy on data leaking. "Obviously, we are disappointed and concerned by this situation and are very eager to understand why it's happening and see full access restored," Internet Archive office manager Chris Butler told Medianama. The Internet Archive has said it has had no contact with the Indian government and has had no response to its own enquiries. Inevitably, at some point, the government is either going to have to explain or lift the block. Article source

  6. A new Nexus tablet has long been rumored to come this year, and now a couple of prototypes have entered India for testing purposes. This information comes from an Indian website that tracks imports to the country, but unfortunately the Nexus 8 listing doesn’t give us an idea about which company is making it. That’s because the prototypes come from the United States, so probably from Google itself and not from the device maker’s country. And the manufacturer’s name doesn’t accompany the Nexus 8 branding in the description of the listing, which is something that rarely happens. Recently we heard that HTC would be unveiling an 8.9-inch Nexus tablet later this year, to coincide with the general release of Android L, the next version of Google’s mobile operating system. Back then we assumed the device would be called Nexus 9, but now it looks like it may be the Nexus 8 instead. Truth be told, with that screen size, either of these is a possibility. If that report pans out, we’re going to see a tablet powered by NVIDIA’s 64-bit Tegra K1 chipset and coming with 2GB of RAM, as well as 16 or 32GB of internal storage. It should sport an 8MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, along with a 3MP front-facing one for selfies and the likes. Source
  7. At the International Indian Film Academy Awards in Tampa this weekend, Kevin Spacey highlighted one of the core problems of media distribution in the Internet age. The star actor of the popular Netflix series House of Cards noted that the show is immensely popular in India, which is a problem since the latest episodes are not legally available. Every day millions of people download TV-shows without getting permission from rightsholders. While some do so because they find the legal alternatives too expensive, there’s a large group that simply has no legal options available to them. The latter is the case in India, where the Netflix original series “House of Cards” can’t be seen legally since the movie streaming service hasn’t rolled out there yet. As a result, Indians can only watch the popular series on demand through unauthorized channels. According to House of Card’s Kevin Spacey, the Indians are turning to these pirate sources in large numbers. During the International Indian Film Academy Awards in Tampa, Florida, he noted that the TV-show is suspiciously popular in India. “House of Cards is really big in India, I discovered,” Spacey said at the red carpet event on Saturday. The actor isn’t all too happy about this popularity, and accuses the Indians of thievery. Since Netflix’ streaming services aren’t available in India yet, they literally don’t have the “right” to see it. “Except isn’t it funny that Netflix doesn’t exist there yet. Which means that you’re stealing it,” Spacey added. Whether Spacey is unhappy with the show’s fans in India, or the fact that they have no legal options is not entirely clear. However, the only real solution to the problem is to ensure that Indians can watch the show too, without breaking the law. The problem that’s highlighted by the House of Cards actor remains one of the major challenges for the TV-studios. For decades, the industry has gotten used to delaying international premieres for month or years, something that fans no longer accept. Luckily, a lot of progress has been made in recent years, with most popular U.S. TV-series premiering on the same day in dozens of countries around the world. While “availability” is no silver bullet that can stop piracy altogether, it’s a crucial first step to take. Update: Perhaps Spacey was a bit too quick with his “stealing” allegations. House of Cards is available on Zee Cafe in India, although not on demand. This means that there is a legal option for those who have access to the channel via cable or satellite. Source: TorrentFreak
  8. Samsung has launched the Galaxy S5 smartphone, along with the Gear 2, Gear Neo and Gear Fit smartwatches in India. The Galaxy S5 will be priced between INR 51,000 ($848) and INR 53,000 ($881). The exact pricing will be announced later but some retailers have already announced plans of selling the phone for INR 51,500 ($856). The variant of Galaxy S5 launched in India runs on Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa 5422 processor with four 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores. This is a true octa core chip, meaning it can run all eight cores simultaneously if necessary. Unlike the Exynos version of the Note 3, however, the Exynos Galaxy S5 does record video in 4K. Samsung will also provide only the 16GB variant but in all four colors, blue, black, white and gold. As for the smartwatches, the Gear 2 is priced at INR 21,900 ($364) whereas the Gear Neo and Gear Fit are priced at INR 15,900 ($264). The phone and the smartwatches will be available for purchase starting April 11. Source
  9. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has reached India and in anticipation of that the price of its predecessor dropped sharply. The Galaxy S5 was shortly available for sale on Saholic but has since been removed. Anyway, the important thing – the price – is known. Samsung's new flagship will set users back INR 45,500 ($745 / €540), which is a little more than what the Galaxy S4 cost when it launched (INR 41,500). The former flagship has since been dropped to around INR 30,000 ($490/€355). Note that this is the I9500 (Exynos chipset), the I9505 (Snapdragon) is hard to find. Anyway, since the product page has been pulled down it's not clear when the S5 flagship will actually go on sale. When it goes back up, it should appear here. In Europe the target launch date is in April and the device costs €600 or more, although this latest posting suggests that these pre-order prices might be over-inflated. If interested you can book the smartphone in multiple European countries. Source

    Moto G launched in India

    The Motorola Moto G has finally been launched in India. For the first time, the company has collaborated with an online retailer for a launch. Moto G will be available exclusively on Flipkart, India's largest e-commerce website, starting tomorrow, February 6. If you're curious about the pricing, you'll be happy to know that Motorola and Flipkart have done a brilliant job with it. The 8GB model is priced at just INR 12,499 ($200) and the 16GB model is priced at INR 13,999 ($225), unlocked without any contract and inclusive of all taxes and shipping charges. Considering the phone lacks expandable memory and there is not much difference between the two prices, it makes sense to go for the 16GB model. It must be noted that the Moto G being sold in India is a dual-SIM variant, unlike the one sold in the US. The phone comes with Android 4.3 at launch and is said to get the 4.4 KitKat update in the coming weeks. This is a departure from the model sold elsewhere that is already running KitKat. It remains to be seen how quickly this model gets the software updates in future and if Motorola maintains the speed it has shown with the Moto X and Moto G in other markets. For now, Flipkart has an exclusivity deal with Motorola to sell the Moto G in India but that may change in the near future. Source
  11. NEW DELHI Sat Jan 25, 2014 1:19pm EST Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (L) and his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh shake hands after addressing the media at Hyderabad House in New Delhi January 25, 2014. Credit: Reuters/Adnan Abidi (Reuters) - India and Japan's talks on nuclear cooperation have gained momentum over the past few months and the two hope for an agreement on civilian nuclear energy soon, leaders of the countries said after meeting on Saturday. "Our negotiations towards an agreement for cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy have gained momentum in the last few months," India's prime minister, Manmohan Singh, said in a statement after meeting his Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe. The Japanese prime minister said in a separate statement they had agreed to continue talks "with the view for early conclusion". Abe's three-day visit to India, which started on Saturday, is underscoring growing business and political ties between the two countries as they face mutual rival China. An agreement on civilian nuclear energy would open up the Indian market to Japanese players, reflecting another shift in Tokyo's policy on a sensitive issue. Japan is also looking to sell ShinMaywa US-2i planes, built by ShinMaywa Industries, that could be outfitted for firefighting or as a kind of amphibious hospital and cost an estimated $110 million per unit. A joint working group has met to explore ways to cooperate on its use and production in India, Singh said. The two countries are also cooperating on several infrastructure projects. NAVAL EXERCISE Japan would extend India a loan of about 200 billion yen ($1.95 billion) for the extension of Delhi's metro underground rail system, Abe said. He added the two sides had also agreed to step up cooperation on high-speed rail systems. Abe will be the first Japanese Prime Minister to witness India's Republic Day celebrations on January 26. India also invited Japan to the Malabar joint naval exercise this year. Indian and U.S. navies conduct their annual Malabar joint exercises in the Bay of Bengal once a year.

  12. By David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON Tue Jan 21, 2014 6:46pm EST (Reuters) - The case of the Indian consul arrested and strip-searched in New York last month was handled "appallingly" and needs to be resolved, but the United States remains probably India's most important ally, the Indian ambassador to Washington said on Tuesday. "I won't underplay this incident, I won't overplay this incident. I think we need to see it in perspective," S. Jaishankar said in an interview. "I think we are in the midst of working this one out." Jaishankar said India was "perplexed" by the decisions of U.S. authorities to arrest and strip-search 39-year-old Devyani Khobragade, India's deputy consul in New York, after she was accused of visa fraud and underpaying her maid. "There was a fair measure of anger about both the substance of the problem and the way it was handled," he said. "It was not just done publicly; frankly it was done appallingly." But Jaishankar, who arrived in Washington in December after serving as Indian ambassador to China, played down the impact on the practical side of the relationship - emphasizing that the two sides were still talking despite the postponement of two high-level U.S. visits this month, including one by U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. "Frankly, it's probably the most important relationship," he said. "We are not holding up business, or Pentagon dealings, or congressional dealings ... or science programs and saying, 'They don't get done until things get sorted out.'" Jaishankar said, however, there was a need to resolve both the Khobragade case and the broader issue of the lesser level of diplomatic immunity accorded to Indian and other foreign consular staff in the United States compared with what Washington expects for its consular staff serving overseas. 'LARGER ISSUE' Asked if India supported a demand from Khobragade's lawyer for the charges against her to be dropped, he said, "That is an issue in respect of this diplomat, but I think there is a larger issue of immunities and privileges." "I think we need to sit down and work this one out." Khobragade left the United States this month after a complex deal in which her diplomatic status was switched to the United Nations, affording her a greater degree of immunity from prosecution. But U.S. authorities have so far refused to drop the charges against her. Until the issue was resolved, Jaishankar said, the level of immunity enjoyed by U.S. consular officials in India would be reduced to exactly the level granted in the United States. "Since our consular officials have no immunity against felonies, U.S. consular officials do not have immunity against serious crimes in India," he said. India sharply curbed privileges offered to U.S. diplomats in retaliation for Khobragade's treatment and asked Washington to withdraw a diplomat from New Delhi. It also ordered the U.S. Embassy to close a club for expatriate Americans in New Delhi, and a government source said it was also preparing steps against the American Embassy School, which it suspected may be employing some staff in violation of visa rules. Jaishankar noted that many Asian nations valued the U.S. presence in their region and that India was keeping a "watchful" eye on the debate over the U.S. budget, which has seen U.S. military leaders warning about the possible impact on Washington's ability to respond to global crises. "I think as uncertainties mount, as volatility grows, I think people do value a strong American presence," Jaishankar said. He noted efforts last year by then-U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to deepen bilateral defense ties, including proposed co-development of the next version of the Javelin anti-tank missile now built by Raytheon Co and Lockheed Martin Corp. Jaishankar called co-development of defense technologies with India "uncharted territory" and added it was a matter he had discussed in his initial interactions with the Pentagon since taking up his post. Still, he said such proposals would take time to develop.

  13. The Venue 8 Pro and Venue 11 Pro tablets have finally arrived in India. The US computing giant Dell launched both the devices alongside two Android running tablets in India today. Both the Venue 8 Pro and Venue 11 Pro tablets are running on Windows 8.1, the latest version of the Windows OS. Priced at Rs 26,499 ($430) for the 32 GB variant, the Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet is an 8-inch device that sports a 720P display and is powered by the Intel Atom Z3740D Bay Trail Quad Core processor running at 1.8 GHz. It has a 2 GB of RAM and a 5 MP camera at the back and 1.2 MP on the front side. The Venue 11 Pro on the other hand is a 10.8-inch tablet with full 1080P display. It is powered by the fourth-generation Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and offers as much as 4GB of RAM. It comes with 8MP camera at the rear and a 2MP on the front. While Dell didn't reveal the price of Venue 11 Pro just yet, it says the device will become available by next month. Source
  14. Samsung this week started selling its new Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone, bringing it to market a bit later than initially expected. The Galaxy Grand 2 seems to be available only in India, where its dual SIM version costs $374 (or Rs.22,999 in local currency). A single SIM model also exists, but this doesn’t appear to be released yet. The Galaxy Grand 2 is Samsung’s second handset to come with a faux leather back, the first being the high-end Galaxy Note 3. Its features include Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a 5.2-inch 720p display, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.9MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. The handset is 8.9mm thin, and includes a 2,600 mAh battery. The Indian version of the Grand 2 comes with free access to Club Samsung for three months, allowing users to enjoy music, movies and mobile TV in 9 Indian languages We don't know when the Grand 2 will reach other markets, but it's probably safe to assume that it's going to happen in the near future. A new, different Galaxy Grand model, reportedly called Grand Neo, might also be released by Samsung soon. This should be cheaper than the Grand 2, offering lower-end specs (including a WVGA 5-inch display). Source
  15. Google is one of a number of companies that firmly believes that everyone has a right to Internet access, and that’s the motivation behind a new campaign in India designed to bring 50 million women online for the first time. The ‘Helping Women Get Online’ campaign kicked off today with a press conference and the launch of a website aimed at communicating the basics of the Internet to first-time female users in India. Rajan Anandan, managing director of Google India, told reporters that only one-third of India’s 200 million-plus Internet users are female, and that’s a ratio that needs to change since the country is tipped to become the world’s second largest Internet market in the future. “[Access to the] Internet can help women achieve self esteem, express their views freely, open up new opportunities and help them to gain education. Our new campaign aims to bring 50 million women online in the next one year so that they can reap the benefits too,” Anandan added. In addition to providing useful information — such as computer basics, Internet skills and details of how to use chat and email services — the website includes a range of video stories designed to highlight the benefits of the Internet to women. There’s even a toll-free hotline for further information. Google has partnered with Intel, Hindustan Unilever and Axis Bank to help raise offline awareness and educate women “to use Internet to improve their lives and enable easy access points across the country.” Source
