A dark web user has allegedly claimed a breach involving Luxor International Private Limited, a prominent Indian manufacturer of stationery products. The Luxor data breach was first detected on April 19, 2024, when postmaster, operating within the nuovo BreachForums, disclosed the leak of a database purportedly belonging to Luxor. 

The leaked data, initially shared on the Telegram channel Leakbase, comprises 692 MB of SQL data, encompassing a trove of sensitive information. Among the data elements exposed are first names, middle names, last names, dates of birth, hashed passwords, billing and shipping details, tax information, and more.

The Luxor data breach included information about individuals registered on the Luxor’s website, implying that the leaked data could be authentic. If the stolen data turns out to be true, the Luxor data leak can lead to loss of trust, financial losses, reputational damage, identity theft, operational disruption, and potential fraud, impacting not only the company but also its customers and stakeholders.

Luxor Writing Instruments Private Limited and Luxor International Private Limited, the entities allegedly affected by the breach, are notified about the breach. With operations spanning the Indian subcontinent, Luxor’s breach has ramifications not only for its domestic clients but also for its customers and partners across Asia & Pacific (APAC).

Moreover, the postmaster’s motives remain unclear as the hacker has not shared any intent or motivation regarding the breach, and the stolen data seems to be limited to customers only as it only contains data from Gmail accounts instead of the organization’s business accounts. 

Decoding the Luxor Data Breach Leak

In a public post attributed to postmaster, the threat actor provided insights into the Luxor data breach, describing Luxor as the “brand leader in the Indian Writing Instrument Industry.” The post included details such as the file name (luxor.in.sql) and size (692 MB uncompressed), offering a glimpse into the scale of the data compromised.

The leaked data appears to consist of billing information or transaction records, organized into distinct entries featuring various fields. These fields likely include identifiers, timestamps, numerical values, and textual data, indicating a comprehensive system for managing billing-related activities.

The Cyber Express has reached out to the organization to learn more about the authenticity of this Luxor data leak. However, at the time of writing this, no official statement or response has been received, leaving the claims for the Luxor data breach stand unverified. 

This is an ongoing story and The Cyber Express will be closely monitoring the situation. We’ll update this post once we have more information on the alleged Luxor data breach or any official confirmation from the organization.
