Clubhouse has denied any data breaches and has not made the user’s phone number public

In a statement to news agency IANS club house He denied these claims and said that “there is a series of bots that generate billions of random numbers.” Regarding what is referred to as the “Clubhouse Database”, the company said, “By mathematical coincidence in case one of these random numbers exists, on our platform, Clubhouse’s API is user-identifiable information. Does not return. ”Jain has not yet responded to the Clubhouse counter after the first tweet about the so-called data breach.

Clubhouse, a voice-based chat app, has denied allegations of data breaches that launched a round on the Internet last week. The explanation came after cybersecurity experts claimed that a database of 3.8 billion phone numbers, allegedly owned by Clubhouse users, was sold on the dark web. In a tweet, expert Jiten Jain also attached a screenshot of a hacker who claims that the database contains the user’s mobile number, landline number, personal phone number, and expert phone number. .. The screenshot further adds, “Clubhouse is connected to every user’s phonebook in real time, which means that every time you add a new phone number to your phonebook, that number is automatically added to Clubhouse’s secret database. “Hackers argued that the value of the data was $ 3 billion, including the number of” most influential “people in the world. The complaint occurred a few days after Clubhouse removed the invitation-only status and made the platform open to all users.

In particular, some experts also took part in the issue, denying the hacker’s allegations. Security researcher Rajshekhar Rajaharia told the news agency that this list of phone numbers could be generated very easily, as in this case, and the data breach claim looks fake. Another researcher, Sunny Nehra, said threat attackers are very new and inactive in the forum and have a habit of making such “incomplete claims.” In early April, Clubhouse denied another allegation of breach after reporting that a database containing 1.3 million had been scraped. Platform user records have been posted on popular hacker forums.
