Being technical savvy, I was about to book a ticket from redBus.in which is India’s largest online bus ticketing platform from Nashik to Mumbai and what happened next, Was totally shocking to me. When selected PayUMoney as my payment gateway and by just verifying my number through OTP, I was able to get PayUmoney customer details, Card Numbers, Card Expiry, Card Type (Master / Or Visa) of both credit and debit card details.
I am running a technology company for 10 years now, and security is our top priority and I was shocked seeing how Indian payment gateway which claims India’s biggest payment gateway is playing with people hard earned money.
Our honourable prime minister is trying his best to promote make in India and digital India and asking all Indian to go online, Open Bank account online and due to this kind of negligence of company Like PayU Money, everything can go in vain.
Anyway, When I clicked on Card List, I was able to see PayUMoney All Saved credit card details, With Name and other info.
Even, I am a customer of PayU and after seeing this my first step was (yes you guessed it right) delete my account from PayU Money and RedBus. and then, I took out my phone and started recording my each and single move, so I can make it more clears to our readers about how and what happened.
