Zhaopin Jobs claims to have 180 million users and regards user information security and privacy protection as its “lifeline”. However, in a QQ group called “58 Zhilian Fans”, the reporter paid a buyer 7 yuan and bought a resume of job applicants on Zhaolian Recruitment. The job applicant’s name, gender, age, photo, contact information, work experience, education experience and other information are all available on the resume.
How were these personal resumes leaked and trafficked in the QQ group? The reporter found that in Zhaolian Recruitment, as long as the corporate account pays to apply for membership, it is possible to download a complete resume containing key information such as name, phone number and email address without limit on the number. The reporter also found that there are people selling corporate accounts of Zhaolian Recruitment. Registration of corporate accounts and fake qualification applications can also be passed. Similar problems do not only occur in Zhaopin recruitment. The reporter found that 51job.com and Liepin.com only need to pay a fee to download the complete resume of job applicants for corporate accounts. There are also management loopholes in corporate accounts.
The police investigation found that criminals obtained resumes through corporate accounts on the one hand; on the other hand, they purchased resumes in bulk through QQ groups. Through this approach, a large amount of personal resume information has continuously flowed into the criminals’ black hands. In recent years, police in various places have cracked many similar cases. In one of the suspect’s hard drives, there are more than 7 million such citizen resumes stored.
