Many of you might already know this but there has been a leaked file that shows a huge database of addresses in Kuwait. The hacker claims it to be from Talabat. The reason I think this file was indeed an extract from Talabat’s database is for a number of reasons.
1. It’s accurate, I know people who confirm their address is there (and are Talabat customers)
2. It’s huge, you can’t make this stuff up. There are 9,999 leaked addresses and tons of mobile numbers in there and many have side comments which are normally tips on how to reach their house
There are things like “PLEASE DONT RING THE BELL! CALL 55xxxxxx” or “Big red house, don`t ring the bell call xxxxxxxx and come to the dewaniya door”
3. Ironically one of the leaked orders is to Talabat’s Head Office at Ahmed Al Jaber street.
I know if I dig deeper I can find more proof, I can’t confirm they’ve been 100% hacked but I’m pretty sure they were based on the database that got leaked. The good news is no credit card information has been leaked. This is because everytime you pay with KNET you get redirected to KNET’s portal that Talabat does not have a database for or access to for that matter.
I won’t be linking to the leaked database to avoid it spreading even further.
