A threat actor has taken to a forum for news and discussion of data breaches with an offer to sell what they assert is a database containing records of over a billion Chinese civilians – allegedly stolen from the Shanghai Police.
Over the weekend, reports started to surface of a post to a forum at Breached.to. The post makes the following claim:
In 2022, the Shanghai National Police (SHGA) database was leaked. This database contains many TB of data and information on Billions of Chinese citizens.
HackerDan offered to sell the lot for 10 Bitcoin – about $200,000. We’ve saved HackerDan’s post as a PDF in case it vanishes.
