Zhenua Data database with personal information of 2.4 million people leaked

According to Vice, the personal information of more than 2.4 million individuals from several countries (including the USA, Australia, and India) have been leaked from a secret database owned by Chinese company Zhenhua Data. The database compiled information of individuals (as well as their relatives), such as birth dates, addresses, marital statuses, political associations, and social media identifications from social media accounts. The intended use of the database is still unclear, but the company provides ‘services for military, security and foreign propaganda’.
