Two exposure incidents

Karin Spaink, a Dutch blog that tracks breaches there, recently reported two breaches:

In August, “Press agency GPD managed to allow Google to index its contact database stored on their intranet, thus releasing phone numbers of thousands of well-known Dutch people. Among those whose contact information was published, were the Dutch prime minister; politician Geert Wilders, lawyer Gerard Spong and tv host Felix Meurders. The GPD blamed the company maintaining their intranet.”

In September, “When releasing the declaration files of members of the government, the dpt. of Justice failed to properly blind the number and expiry date of the credit cards of the minister of Health and the minister of Justice. Both ministers had to be issued new credit cards.”

Links to media reports for both can be found on the blog.
