This is extremely concerning
A massive database of nearly 2 million registered Chinese Communist Party members has been leaked, providing the rest of the world with an "unprecedented view" into the structure of how China could infiltrate western businesses and companies, including ones in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
The worrisome leak was reported by Sky News Australia, which said the database breach "lifts the lid on how the party operates under President and Chairman Xi Jinping."
"Communist party branches have been set up inside western companies, allowing the infiltration of those companies by CCP members — who, if called on, are answerable directly to the communist party, to the Chairman, the president himself," Sky News' Sharri Markson said. "Along with the personal identifying details of 1.95 million communist party members, mostly from Shanghai, there are also the details of 79,000 communist party branches, many of them inside companies."
"It is believed to be the first leak of its kind in the world," Markson proclaimed.
