Universiti Malaya Staff Personal Data Exposed

Massive amounts of personal details belonging to Academic and Non-Academic staff of Universiti Malaya were dumped online earlier today. Also leaked was close to 24,000 login id’s and hashed passwords – believed to be from UM’s e-Pay online payment portal.

As of June 2019, Universiti Malaya is reported to have 2,013 local and 331 International Academic Staff, as well as 649 Management Personal and 2,877 Support Staff which we believe are now victims of this data breach.

The leaked files, which were uploaded to an anonymous file-sharing site also included backend passwords and database credentials, making it a very real possibility that a lot more data and financial records – even those belonging to the students – might have been compromised.
