An exposed database tracked whether 1.8 million Chinese women were “breed ready”

Over the weekend, security researcher Victor Gevers stumbled across a Chinese database of 1.8 million women who listed names, addresses, phone numbers, and potentially worse positions. Gbeds, who had an IP address of over 300 million private messages last week leaked in China and discovered the database at the GDI Foundation, a Dutch non-profit organization.

"We do not know who is behind this database, and what is the intention, that's what we worry the most about," Gevers said The Verge. He said that the IP address of the database was in China, and most of the women included in the record were in Beijing.

The database was online and closed in about a day and a half after Gevers reported on Twitter. It dropped until 4 am on Monday. The database also included information about each woman's education and marital status. There was also evidence that more information about women is being tracked. This data set includes the "Political" and "Has Video" fields, some of which are linked to the female Facebook profile page. Women with Facebook pages need to access the platform via VPN or travel abroad.
