Last week, a threat actor going by the name of ChinaDan offered more than 23TB of data for sale on Breach Forums. The user stated that the data is from a leaked Shanghai National Police Database. In the post, ChinaDan claims that information on over one billion Chinese citizens is available. The current asking price for the information is 10 bitcoin, or roughly $200,000. The news of this breach has caused a lot of discussion on Chinese social media platforms, but it has not yet been possible to verify the claims. If this breach proves to be legitimate, it will be one of the biggest breaches ever reported.
