Chinese police make arrests over data theft at Alibaba delivery arm. In June, police in Hangzhou received reports from the logistics company that barcode scanners used in its distribution stations had been infected with malware that transferred the collected data to remote cloud servers. The data included the names of the logistic firms, user names, phone numbers and parcel tracking numbers, according to Cainiao. From July to September, local police launched raids in the provinces of Anhui, Jiangsu and Shandong, and arrested the suspects.
