TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Health Ministry said there was no data leak in the Indonesia Health Alert Card (eHAC) system. According to the Ministry's head of Data and Information Center, Anas Mas'ruf, public information stored in the eHAC system is safe.

"Community data stored in eHAC did not leak into partner platforms," Anas said in an online press conference, Wednesday, September 1.

Meanwhile, National Cyber and Crypto Agency (BSSN) spokesman Anton Setiyawan said that what happened was not a data leak. Reports about system vulnerabilities by VPN Mentor was part of the trade information sharing process, wherein parties with interests in cybersecurity commonly exchange information.

"Thankfully we received excellent information from friends at VPN Mentor. We were then able to verify it, and our friends at the Health Ministry were able to follow-up on the vulnerability information," said Anton.

He said that these types of information are part of risk mitigation and preventive measures. Anton also ensured that existing data is still stored properly.

Nevertheless, the Health Ministry is investigating the matter thoroughly, coordinating directly with the BSSN and the Police's Cyber Crimes Directorate. Anas said this was part of cybersecurity mitigation. Later, the team will conduct data tracing to ensure there are no other vulnerabilities that can be used to exploit the system.
