Nl: Notary puts clients passports online
Karin Spaink provides an English summary of a recent breach reported in Dutch media:
Veilingnotaris.nl tries to list all online real estate auctions. Apparently their site is badly protected: Google has indexed quite some client information, including passport copies, notary deeds, registry information etcetera. The published information concerned both recent and old auctions.
Internet Notaries, the owner of veilingnotaris.nl, denied all responsibility. ‘All similar agencies publish this kind of information’, they claim, ‘and besides, it’s the responsibility of the notary who’s doing the auction.’
