Shinovene Immanuel and Okeri Ngutjinazo report:

Personal information of thousands of people registered with the Social Security Commission (SSC) has been leaked on the internet.

The leak, extracted from the SSC website since Friday, includes private details of clients such as salaries, home addresses and copies of national documents, including ID cards and passports.

The extent of the leak is not yet fully known, but documents seen by The Namibian so far show that the breach of confidential information affects over 2 000 people registered with the national welfare agency.
