French hacker looking into Google's Aadhar faux pas
Elliot Anderson is a 28-year-old hacker from France. An Android developer by profession, he is known for his excellent technical knowledge. In the past, he has cracked the UIDAI database's password. He has also written openly to the Telangana and Andhra Pradesh governments in the past about how some of their databases and the secret information in them are vulnerable.
The same hacker has tweeted on the UIDAI toll-free number finding its way into Android phones in India, thanks to a mistake by Google. He says, "This is the code (posts a screenshot) added by Google to add the UIDAI phone number by default in your contact list. This code is still in the latest version of SetupWizard. Google, I hope there is nothing more, I will spend the upcoming days to check all the customisation you made in the... ...GMS apps. It will be awesome if you can disclose why you did that in the first place. Please I'm asking you to be transparent on this one."
