Nl: Data on hundreds of politicians leaked

Karin Spaink provides an  English summary of a recent breach reported in Dutch media:

The addresses, telephone numbers, mobile phone numbers, home e-mail addresses and work e-mail addresses of hundreds of politicians (all members of the PvdA, the Dutch social democrats) and a number of their sponsors are out in the open. Although the list focuses on party members in the Amsterdam area, it also contains the data of the chair of the Dutch Parliament and several members of the European Parliament. Google has indexed the file. A few hours after the news was published and the owners of the website were contacted, they managed to close the open directory.
