Just wondering if anyone is still holding on to a Hotlink SIM card (not the old Hotlink Bagus plan), and waiting for Validity365 to return.

(No flaming, please. I know there're many other options out there, but it's just a matter of personal choice and usage pattern. Just sharing/discussing here; I'm just another user.)

Me. I am still holding on to the tablet plan which was converted to the new hotlink plan. Luckily i still have 1 old hotlink plan sim.

So what i did was to transfer credits between the 2 Sims. Then when the old plan about to expire pay for 365.

So yes. I wish 365 is made available to new plans...

380k e-pay Malaysia Users Have Had Their Data Allegedly Leaked, Here’s What To Know

Epay users please take note. :s22::s22::eek:

Reports have surfaced that personal details of at least 380,000 e-pay Malaysia customers are being allegedly sold on an online data-sharing forum for US$300 (roughly RM1,215).

This transaction was highlighted on Twitter and shared on Facebook at 3AM on February 4.

From what we can see of a sample record that has since been deleted on the forum, data being leaked consists of names, full addresses, passwords, mobile phone numbers, and more.

Better Safe Than Sorry
Now, it’s unclear whether or not the payment gateway itself has been hacked. This might just be a website hack through e-pay.com.my, as the details shared in the leak line up with the website’s user info field.

Their other products like the online payment gateway and terminal might not be affected, as we haven’t seen any victims sharing on social media that their financial accounts have been affected yet.

On the Facebook post, most commenters who are also users merely voiced out their worries.

To be on the safe side though, e-pay Malaysia users should change their username and passwords immediately, even if they may not be one of the 380,000 users affected.

Additionally, users can consider deactivating or deleting their accounts until e-pay Malaysia makes an official statement on this, or at least avoid making any transactions through the site for the meantime.


Some of its merchants listed on the site
Because e-pay is Malaysia’s largest prepaid top-up and bill collection network, some of its merchants include:

Telco companies: Hotlink, DiGi, and Celcom XPAX;
Online game reloads: Steam, Razer Gold, and PlayStation;
Bill payments: Astro, TNB, and Unifi;
Retail: Petronas, Aeon, MyNEWS, Petron, MyDin, and Mr DIY;
Others: Numoni and Redtone.
They also service most card and e-wallet payments such as Visa, MasterCard, GrabPay, Touch ‘n Go eWallet, etc.

Stopping This From Happening Again
Though there’s likely nothing you can do if your info has already been leaked, commentators are disappointed that it allegedly happened in the first place.

As we wait for an official report, we noticed some suggestions on Facebook from concerned users on what others could do in the meantime on top of the aforementioned immediate actions.

One option, on top of changing your online banking passwords, is to change the payment account that’s using the debit option.

If possible, concerned users could request making a new debit card with a new number from your bank (it’s still the same account, under a different number).

On e-pay Malaysia’s end, it is extremely important that they be transparent about providing the exact details of:

What had happened;
What factors caused it to happen;
What actions will be taken against those accountable for this alleged hack;
What initiatives e-pay Malaysia (and its merchants, if applicable) will be taking to prevent something like this from happening again in the future.
As of now, e-pay Malaysia has yet to address user concerns or clarify anything and we have no further way to verify this information, but we hope investigation and a report is underway nonetheless.

Even if this turns out to be untrue, the lack of clarification from e-pay Malaysia could still end up hurting their brand reputation and cause customers to lose confidence in them.

So, we’ve reached out to e-pay Malaysia to get their side of the story and more facts, and will be updating the piece with their responses.

Editor’s Update (February 4, 6:17PM): The e-pay Malaysia team has gotten back to us with a media statement to acknowledge the issue. We’ve summarised their statement below.

The GHL Group on behalf of e-pay Malaysia stated that the above allegations are isolated only to the e-pay online reload and bill payment collection system (EVE).

The EVE system operates on an independent standalone system which does not interfere with the technical operations of other e-pay and GHL merchant acquiring systems and servers, so their other businesses and operations will not be impacted.

Investigations are still being conducted, and the team shared that they’ll continue to update users on the progress and any new findings.

In the meantime, they advised EVE users to go to the official website and change their passwords as precautionary measures, and avoid clicking on unverified email links urging them to update their credentials.

just sharing with you guys, I have 2 hotline number. (weekend 2gb 4g network, the old one)

I have been using the touch n go app to reload 5rm and then share a top up 1rm to another number.

works effectively. Eliminate the hassle for me to look for reload tickets in Singapore, especially now we can't go over to JB

If I get what you mean, then yes. Can transfer the data to other OneXOX card/s before we junk the old account/s. :D

The free weekend data (1GB each for Saturday and Sunday) is the old Hotlink FAST plan. I'm still keeping one 'alive' via this Share-a-Topup method. ;)

Still have, you need to install celcom app into your phone, and it is under bottom menu -> More -> Support and services menu (scroll horizontally) -> scroll down to validity extension.
