160,000 resumes on Chinese recruitment site Zhilian allegedly exposed and leaked
Cyrus Lee reports:
Zhilian Zhaopin, one of the top job recruitment sites in China, has released evidence at a Beijing trial showing that as many as 160,000 personal resumes uploaded onto its site were allegedly stolen and leaked for around 5 yuan (70 US cents) apiece, according to a Sina report.
Following the evidence being heard at court, Zhilian said in a statement on Tuesday night that user data is the company’s “lifeblood” and reaffirmed that protection of user information is its core responsibility.[…]
The company first reported the case to police in June 2018 as it found users’ information had been traded on Taobao, Alibaba’s e-commerce website, Zhilian said in the statement. Two staff from the Zhilian’s Shanghai bureau were then arrested by police two months later in August.
