Cn: Bank details on the web

Jia Feishang reports:

China’s biggest search engine, Baidu, removed files containing the personal details of thousands of locals from its document-sharing platform yesterday, following public outcry over the breach of privacy.

Shanghai Daily has discovered similar documents online, including a local list of customers with a domestic bank said to have savings of more than 5 million yuan (US$762,020). The 25-page file, published by a netizen identified as “kim_n1982,” details people’s names, ID numbers, addresses and cell phone numbers.

The file, along with a similar document concerning another bank, was deleted late yesterday.

An official surnamed Ma with the bank involved said most of the information was incorrect and had not been leaked from the bank.
