A Chinese technology company with links to Beijing's military and intelligence agencies has been compiling personal information on millions of people from the US, UK, Australia, Canada, India and Japan.

The database, which is understood to have been stolen and leaked to the Five Eyes Intelligence network by an anti-China activist, was put together by the private firm Zhenhua Data: a Shenzhen-based company that lists the People's Liberation Army and Chinese Communist Party among its main clients.

Contained therein were the names and personal details of some 2.4 million people, including 35,000 Australians, 40,000 Britons, and a vast number of high-profile figures such as senior politicians, members of the royal family, religious leaders and military officers.
