Reported a security issue of #Aadhaar demographic authentication API without any access restriction & was on unsecured protocols. This allows third parties to access APIs without being a AuA. Similar security issue has been previously reported.…
If you saw demographic authentications for your #Aadhaar on UIDAI portal, but you haven't done it. It's likely a third party who is trying to verify your details. As demographic authentication does not require any permission from the Aadhaar holder
Aadhaar is truly a broken system designed by people who have no idea about Information security, apart from the vested interest to make profits from it

It has always been said #Aadhaar is being linked to religion and caste information, apart from occupation. While UIDAI is not doing it, other government departments are. Here is proof that UIDAI has no idea what all is being linked to your unique id. Website reported early today.
It's a live public website yet to be closed down. Reported it to multiple agencies. More details later.
