THREE of China's biggest banks have denied an online rumor that more than 100 million bank account details, including passwords, had been leaked onto the Internet.

Bank officials told Shanghai Daily that account passwords were encrypted in their databases making it "impossible" for staff to see them.

They claimed the leaked accounts were fakes that did not exist and said they would work with police to find out who was responsible for the rumor and who had uploaded the false details.

The rumor first appeared on IT news website, which reported yesterday that more than 70 million bank accounts had been leaked from the Bank of Communications and more than 35 million from China Minsheng Banking Corp.

The website published a screenshot showing bank card numbers, user names and passwords. It said account details from the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China had also been leaked.
