In response to continuous tweets of Gajwani, Mak Man retweeted, “I hereby confirm that no financial information was accessed during the hack of Gaana.com. Database was so huge that i didn’t even bother looking (Hell I didn’t even know If it was there.. and no information was dumped and stored locally .. not even a single row.  The exploit script was just a POC to highlight the issue which was grabbing the details directly from their DBMS and I repeat again information was not stored locally . Finally No body grabbed bulk details through my POC script as it was CAPTCHA protected and it had the ability to ban an IP having automated (BOT) behavior. Most of the News Websites/Blogs have posted false information about the hack.”
