Hacker leaks 23 TB of Shanghai police data

A hacker he argues that he has "in his hands" the Shanghai police database containing information on a billion Chinese citizens. This according to experts, if true, will be one of the biggest data breaches in history.


An anonymous user, who goes by the pseudonym “ChinaDan,” posted an ad on hacker forum Breach Forums last week offering more than 23 terabytes (TB) of data for 10 BTC, equivalent to about $200.000.

“In 2022, the Shanghai National Police (SHGA) database was leaked. This database contains several TB of information on billions of Chinese citizens,” the post said.

"The databases contain information on 1 billion Chinese nationals and several billion case records, including: name, address, place of birth, ID number, mobile phone number, all the details of each crime/case."

Reuters was unable to verify the authenticity of the post as the government and Shanghai police did not respond to the website's requests for comment.
