SINGAPORE: Local bike-sharing service provider oBike had suffered a global security breach that lasted  at least two weeks, resulting in user data being leaked online.

According  to a recent report by Bavarian news agency BR24, user data that could be accessed online include names, mobile phone numbers, email addresses,  profile pictures and the routes they took when they rented the bicycles. It added that the data was not encrypted or protected.

It stated in the report that these data did not just affect users in Germany, but also users from others such as Singapore, Malaysia, Switzerland and Great Britain.

it looks like these start-ups and tech companies never learn - it is of vital and utmost importance to protect client's information from data breaches ....

imagine if your bike riding patterns and habits are exposed to others?

it is like having Hotel81 or Fragrance Hotels entire client registration history from 1990 dumped on the web where your potential spouse or galfren can check if you went there to hei-sho hei-sho with another chiobu ..... really will ki siao liao ....
