China is notorious for strictly controlling and monitoring its people, but it seems that China not only enjoys watching its nation, but other nations as well.

A massive data breach from a Chinese-only website has surfaced on the internet. Zhenhua Data Information Technology Co. was spying on 2.4 million people worldwide, includingwere10,000 prominent Indians.

Zhenhua systematically collected critical information about his targets. The company provides data to the Chinese military, the Chinese government, and commercial customers.

Zhenhua data leak

The files containing data from the Chinese firm were sent to American scholar Christopher Balding, who worked at Chinas Peking University in Shenzhen. The data in the files was corrupted, which is why Balding shared the data with the Internet 2.0 cybersecurity company for data recovery and analysis.

Out of 2.4 million pieces of leaked data, around 25,000 records have been recovered so far.

Zhenhua collected data from 52,000 Americans, 35,000 Australians, 10,000 Indians, 9,700 Britons, 5,000 Canadians, 2,100 Indonesians, 1,400 Malaysians and 138 residents of Papua New Guinea.

The Chinese company had collected and compiled publicly available data by monitoring people’s digital footprints on their social media platforms. Not only that, but the company also collects information from newspapers, news sources, tender documents, forums, patents and even recruiting positions.

How Data Leaks Can Affect India

With an already sensitive situation at LAC (Line of Actual Control) in eastern Ladakh, this data breach is forcing us to wonder how far China can go to keep an eye on us.

The list of people monitored by Zhenhua includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his wife Jashodaben, President Ram Nath Kovid, Minister of Finance Nirmala Sitharaman, Comptroller and Auditor General GC Murmu, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul & Priyanka Gandhi, Ratan Tata and Sachin Tendulkar.

Zhenhuas Overseas Key Information Database (OKIDB) collected the target’s personal information by keeping track of their friends and family members and analyzing their social media accounts, including posts and comments. They even used artificial intelligence tools to monitor their geographic information.

This granular information is already public, but a record of this information can be put together for a larger tactical plan against India.

According to India TV, the website is no longer accessible, so it has likely been deleted. However, this clearly shows that the depth of Chinese surveillance cannot be underestimated.
