"Tribune's Story "Rs 500, 10 minutes, and you have access to billion Aadhaar details" is a case of misreporting".
The alleged loopholes in security of Aadhaar data have caught the eyes of the public and the government alike, with the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) denying the newspaper report that the data was leaked. Snowden shared his viewpoint after a report came to light last week claiming that private information in almost 1.2 billion Indian nationals in Aadhaar cards has been breached.
A media report on Wednesday claimed that Aadhaar details of all Indian citizens could be accessed by paying anonymous sellers just Rs 500, drawing a swift denial by the issuing authority UIDAI.

In a statement, the Authority said that the reported case appears to be instance of misuse of the grievance redressal search facility and assured that it maintains complete log and traceability of the facility and any misuse can be traced and appropriate action taken.

In a statement issued on Thursday evening, UIDAI said it has given search facility for the goal of grievance redressal to the designated personnel and state government officials to help residents only by entering their Aadhaar number / EID. The material also states that they have been able to buy the code that have access to the information, as well as the software that allows the printing of Aadhaar's fake cards.
The Tribune said: "UIDAI has admitted that a facility on their website has been "misused". Also, the tracking system obviously never realized that unauthorized people were accessing the data.
In a counter argument, the authority said that a mere display of demographic information could not be misused without biometrics.
It also stressed that mere availability of Aadhaar number will not lead to financial fraud as for a successful authentication fingerprint or iris of individual is also required.
UIDAI, the body that runs Aadhaar, denied that the breach allowed access to millions of Aadhaar cardholders' details+, saying the search facility is available for the goal of grievance redressal and only to designated personnel and state government officials.
