Tag: #LTO data breach
We have been following the developments of this incident and we noticed that the website ordered by the NTC to be blocked is not spelled correctly. The correct website should have been lisensya.info and NOT lisenya.info. The order above therefore is useless in blocking traffic to the offending website.
The country’s transportation agency is now on a hot seat as thousands of personal information of drivers and vehicle owners were processed and saved by a website pretending to be an official LTO page. Thousands of users were tricked into submitting what looks like harmless information but later used to get their personal data. Simply put, personally identifiable information under the responsibility of the Land Transportation Office of the Philippines were downloaded by unauthorized individuals.
If you have used the website lisensya.info there is a big possibility that you would be a victim of identity theft in the near future.
