Shanghai Data Leak

Jul 8, 2022 | Media Releases & Appearances

Our co-CEO, Robert Potter, has been busy providing his analysis to a range of media outlets on the recent leak of 1 billion personal records, mostly belonging to Chinese citizens, but also Australian citizens.

Robert  has told the media he had assessed the data sets and they appeared to be authentic because the records are like other Chinese government data systems he has evaluated in the past.

The screenshot above shows a list of addresses, but other parts of the leak included personal information such as names, ages and dates of birth. Picture from ABC News.
