Shakeel Ahmed of SAMMA TV stated on Thursday that the Security Exchange Commission of Pakistan’s (SECP) website included data on businesses that had been compromised.
The officials claimed to have discovered the unnecessary copying of some companies’ data.
According to SECP officials, the data was illegally released on another website after being stolen from the website’s back end.
They said that the relevant law enforcement agency has been notified about the situation.
According to SECP officials, safety precautions have been taken in the wake of the event, and searches for organisations’ names and basic contact information have been suspended temporarily.
They claimed that steps were being taken to increase the security of SECP’s system.
