Online Store compromises millions of Chinese Citizen IDs

Millions of citizens have had their personal information exposed online due to yet another instance of an unprotected database. Researchers in the field of cybersecurity from CloudDefense.ai recently discovered a database created by Zhefengle, a Chinese e commerce store specializing in importing products from overseas. This particular database contained 3.3 million records of orders placed by Zhefengles customers between 2015 and 2020. Some entries included shipping addresses and phone numbers while others even contained copies of government issued identification cards.
