A hacker claimed to have stolen one billion Chinese residents' records from Shanghai police in what would rank as possibly the biggest data breach in the country’s history. 

A post on the hacker hot-spot Breach Forums listed the information "on one billion Chinese national residents and several billion case records" for sale to the sum of 10 Bitcoin, or roughly $200,000. 

The poster, using the name ChinaDan, on Sunday said the trove of information included "name, address, birthplace, national ID number, mobile number, all crime/case details."
