About 17 million Zomato users' records have been stolen from the company's database and is being sold in dark web. He/she has also taken down the Dark Web marketplace link but gave a copy of leaked data to Zomato.
RESTURANT DISCOVERY SERVICE Zomato is the latest firm to suffer a data breach, which it admits has compromised the personal information of 6.6 million of its users. Bug bounties are a standard program among tech companies, where they reward outsiders to highlight bugs and flaws in their software systems. However, the absolute delight that foodies are, Zomato users have absolutely different concerns, most of which are their food-related inhibitions. The company had unveiled that the user records, which includes usernames and hashed passwords, of its 17 million users had been stolen while reassuring that the payment information including the credit card details was safe. No other information was exposed to anyone (we have a copy of the "leaked" database with us). "Your payment information is absolutely safe and there's no need to panic", Zomato said in a statement.
While earlier Zomato speculated that this was an internal (human) security breach, which means possibly some employee's development account got compromised, Zomato has today updated its blog informing, this was actually a deed of a hacker, who basically wanted the platform to be aware of their loopholes.
"The database includes emails and password hashes of registered Zomato users while the price set for the whole package is United States dollars 1,001.43".

This content is not indexed on search engines like Google, and can only be accessed using software that can route around the public internet to get there.
Zomato said that no money has passed hands and that it has been in communication with the hacker.
