Two email gaffes expose Dutch subscribers’ email addresses

Dutch newsletter subscribers seem to be having a tough time recently keeping their email addresses private.

According to Karin Spaink‘s blog, first the police accidentally exposed 650 newsletter recipients’ addresses in the cc-field instead of using the bcc-field of a newsletter, and then Het Dagblad van het Noorden exposed a .txt file with 32.781 e-mail addresses of people who are subscribed to their electronic newsletter; the file got indexed by Google.
