LU: Pirate Party chief on trial for data leak


President of the Luxembourg Pirate Party Sven Clement on Wednesday goes on trial for data theft and violation of data traffic laws, after stealing the password to a medical database in 2012.

The incident dates back to January 2012, when a hacker gained access to over 48,000 medical files on licenced athletes in Luxembourg, after a patient had found the username and password to the database on a post-it stuck on their doctor’s computer screen.

However, the suspect did not simply inform the “Service Médico-Sportif” of the problem, but chose to make the matter public.
