Data Leak Exposes Details of Two Million Chinese Communist Party Members

Source: Info Security

Sensitive data of around two million members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) have been leaked, highlighting their positions in major organizations, including government agencies, throughout the world.

According to reports from The Australian newspaper, featured in the Economic Times, the information includes official records such as party position, birthdate, national ID number and ethnicity. It revealed that members of China’s ruling party hold prominent positions in some of the world’s biggest companies, including in pharmaceutical giants involved in the development of COVID-19 vaccines like Pfizer and financial institutions such as HSBC.

The investigation by The Australian centred around the data leak, which was extracted from a Shanghai server in 2016 by Chinese dissidents.

It noted that CPC members are employed as senior political and government affairs specialists in at least 10 consulates, including the US, UK and Australia, in the eastern Chinese metropolis Shanghai. The paper added that many other members hold positions inside universities and government agencies.

1. this is curious

"Chinese dissidents" did this. I wonder if we will see the fall of the Chinese communist party sometime within the next few generations? It could happen.

2. There's probably 2 million US Republicans and Democrats in similar positions around the world ...

Anybody freaking out about that?

China has one party, so basically everyone at any level of government in China is Communist Party.

There's millions of people who have been part of the Chinese Government.

Are they supposed to be banned from any other job anywhere else in the world?
