China’s leading video-sharing platform, Bilibili, confirmed rumors that some of its source code had leaked -- code for the site’s fundamental infrastructure and operation -- but argued that the leaked version was old and will not affect the site’s safety and user privacy.

On Monday, Chinese media reported that substantial portions of the site's code was being shared on tech website GitHub. Weibo users later found on GitHub that there was also code for Bilibili users’ email addresses and passwords.

Weibo topic "Bilibili source codes leak" soared to the second most-searched topic, as netizens feared leak of their personal data.

Bilibili said it had reported the leak to authorities and activated  a "security defense plan." 

Related content on GitHub is now not available.
