In a major cybersecurity incident, an alleged database containing personal information of 85 million Egyptian citizens is reportedly up for sale on a hacking forum. The threat actor claims the database includes sensitive data such as National Identification numbers, full names, family information, mother's names, insurance numbers, and mobile numbers.
