Police in China have arrested a man with the surname of Zeng for leaking personal information on more than 6 million users of the China Software Developer Network (CSDN).

"The leak occurred on December 21, 2011, exposing user names, passwords, and e-mail addresses belonging to online shopping, gaming, social networking, and even financial service websites," writes ZDNet's Emil Protalinski. "Police noticed that most of the leaked data dated from July 2009 to July 2010, indicating the CSDN server was hacked before July 2010, according to Shanghai Daily."

"Zeng was caught in Wenzhou, east China’s Zhejiang Province, on February 4, 2012 after an investigation into the case," Protalinski writes.
