Request to admins: Please mask identifiers like dp client id next time while sharing, even if the person is willing to share. I’m concerned about the privacy of the party but more importantly security aspects of it. Imagine some hacker scanning these forums for such information to break in or some unscrupulous user misusing it. I’ve been trained to look for these vulnerabilities, so please take it in that sense. Also, please spread the awareness, so next time nobody shares such identifiable information with this forum or anywhere else.
I haven’t tested how hackable nsdl e-services are, I assume they are very secure considering the nature of the data and the multi factor authentication mechanisms such as OTP.
But identity theft is a huge issue in US where hackers assume the identity of real people and claim their tax refunds. Tax refund is the largest amount anyone gets in US as a paycheck, since all taxes are paid and refund claimed unlike in India, where all taxes are adjusted and only extras are paid while filing.
