Hacker ChinaDan claimed to own 1 billion user data from China and is ready to sell all the information for 10 bitcoins (about $200,000). The hacker posted his sales offer on the Breached.to forum.

As the journalists reported, the personal data of the users, which the hacker claimed, are currently available both on the darknet and in the public domain. Therefore, it is not possible to confirm the information that it was ChinaDan that stole the data and is the “original source”.

Previously, the CEO of the Binance cryptocurrency exchange, Changpeng Zhao, reported on his official Twitter page about the theft of personal data of users of “one Asian country”. This happened because of a bug in Elastic Search, which was installed by a government agency. The Chinese authorities do not comment on the leak of information, but there are rumors that it did not happen without the help of the Shanghai police.

At the time of writing, it is not known what will happen to users’ personal data. However, this case of information theft is not the only one in the crypto world. Thus, the trading platform for the sale of non-fungible tokens OpenSea recently announced the theft of personal data of users – all through the email partner of the Customer.io platform.

The service employee illegally used his own access to users’ e-mail addresses to create and send automatic mailings. He downloaded all the email addresses into his database and passed them on to a third party. It is not known what is worse — a stolen database from hackers or confidential information in the hands of the government. So, last week, the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase was accused of selling the personal data of users to the US government.
