After suffering a major hack attack, India's popular music streaming service Gaana.com is back in business. The service was hacked on Thursday by a netizen who goes by the moniker Mak Man. His Facebook page shows that he is based in Lahore, Pakistan.
Gaana.com remained offline for hours. Interestingly, Satyan Gajwani, CEO of Times Internet who owns Gaana.com has offered the hacker a job at Gaana.com to help find other issues on the site.
We've asked Makman if he'd be willing to work with us and help us find any other issues as well. https://t.co/8txhpbKGVc 8/n— Satyan Gajwani (@satyangajwani) May 28, 2015
The CEO tweeted to confirm that the website has been restored and the vulnerability in the system has been successfully patched and also requested all the existing users to change their passwords. He also confirmed that no user data has been compromised.
First of all, we have patched the vulnerability within an hour of its discovery, as MakMan has also acknowledged. 2/n— Satyan Gajwani (@satyangajwani) May 28, 2015
