Clubhouse Denies Data Breach Claims, No Users’ Phone Numbers Leaked
Clubhouse, the voice-based chat app, has denied allegations of a data breach that started doing rounds on the internet last week.
The clarification came after a cybersecurity expert claimed that a database of 3.8 billion phone numbers purportedly belonging to Clubhouse users is up for sale on the Dark web.
In a tweet, expert Jiten Jain had also attached a screenshot from the hacker who claims that the database includes users’ cellphone, fixed, private, and professional phone numbers. The screenshot further notes that “Clubhouse is connected in real time to all their users’ phonebooks meaning each time you add a new phone number in your phonebook, the number is automatically added into the secret database of Clubhouse. ”
