UIDAI Reports Aadhaar Data to Be Safe after Alleged Fraud

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has refuted the fraudulent release or misuse of India’s Aadhaar biometrics data after media reports claimed the release of Aadhaar data involving a private bank, its business correspondence agency and an e-sign agency; the UIDAI reports that an attempt was made to access data but internal security systems prevented the data’s release; the incident exemplifies the strict security surrounding the use of Aadhaar data in India.  Source
