PETALING JAYA: The Social Security Organisation (Socso) said it is aware of allegations that the agency has been hit by a cybersecurity incident.
"We are aware and will be releasing a full statement," a representative said when contacted by LifestyleTech.
On Dec 5, a user posted on BreachForums alleging that personal data had been leaked from Socso.
The post included sample data such as names, addresses, payment methods and mobile numbers.
The user claimed more samples would be released within 72 hours.
A day later, the user posted a link to a video claiming it's a recording of a meeting involving Socso's management team addressing the cybersecurity incident.
