Jan Lee reports:

Ex-students from Xinmin Secondary School received a shock yesterday when they found out that their alma mater had suffered a data breach.

Several told The New Paper they received calls from their former school yesterday, informing them that their names and identity card numbers had been leaked on pastebin.com, self-described as “where you can store any text online for easy sharing”.

When contacted, the school confirmed the incident, saying it was alerted on Sept 28 this year to a data breach of its students’ personal information on the file-sharing website.
