A large database with approximately 33 million profiles for people seeking jobs in China has been fully accessible and unprotected online. This information included sensitive information that could have been used for scammers and identity theft. The database was discovered by Sanyam Jain, a security researcher and member of GDI.Foundation, who found the database using the Shodan search engine. The 57GB Elasticsearch database contains the profiles of users in China who uploaded their resume and personal information to job recruitment sites. The exposed data included a job seeker’s username, gender, age, current city, home address, email address, phone number, marriage status, job history, education history, and salary history.
