Victims of cyber crimesPokerBaazi, which has more than 2 million registered users, has clarified that its server did not expose any real data pertaining to users.

Anurag Sen in a tweet said that the exposure was due to a misconfiguration in the system and could be accessed by anyone with knowledge of the database’s IP address. The size of the exposed data was more than 6GB in size, and growing.

PokerBaazi spokesperson said that “we would like to clarify that there is no data breach and our server did not expose any real data pertaining to users.”
