A database containing resumes of more than 200 million Chinese people has been found exposed online.
Security firm Hackenproof said the “very detailed” information lacked even the most basic security protections.
Names, mobile phone numbers, email addresses, education histories and many other personal details were included in the data trove.
Analysis suggested the information was built up by “scraping” several Chinese job sites.
The data loss is the latest in a series that have exposed information about Chinese people.
