Personal data of 300,000 K Box Singapore clients surfaces online
K Box, which was previously owned by Singaporean David Wong, was sold to Koshidaka Holdings, which runs karaoke chains in Japan, in February this year.

At least five customers have confirmed with The Straits Times that the leaked database contains their names, addresses and mobile phone and identity card numbers, although some information is outdated. Details of celebrities who are members of the karaoke chain also appear to have been posted. K Box membership numbers and loyalty points earned were also exposed.

A group which called itself "The Knowns" emailed the following message to media outlets early Tuesday morning. Here is the full message:

For a government who cares for nothing but profit and disregards the plight of others, we will attack and expose.

The recent increase in toll at Woodlands is an unnecessary financial burden on working Malaysians. The selfish act increases the revenue of the Singapore government at the expense of the common people.

It is unacceptable. To show our displeasure, we are releasing the database of Kbox containing more than 300k personal details of its membership. If nothing is done to ease the burden then no Singaporean will be safe, we will continue to release more databases of Singapore companies.

We have done before and will do again.
