 Hackers stole 1 billion users' data from police

Hackers allegedly stole the personal data of more than 1 billion Chinese citizens. This could be one of the biggest data breaches in history, if confirmed, according to Reuters.

Hackers have put up for sale personal records of Chinese citizens that were stolen during a cybersecurity breach allegedly targeting the Shanghai National Police (SHGA) database.< br />
Presumably this data is now for sale on both the open web and the dark web. The stolen information includes names, addresses, official identification numbers, mobile phones and other sensitive data of Chinese citizens.

An anonymous hacker named ChinaDan claims to have sold the stolen information for 10 bitcoins (about $200,000). ChinaDan has posted an offer on the Breached hacker forum.
