Its mind-bogglingly crap. Even if the consequences of it happening don;t turn out ot be serious in a criminal sense, there's the prospect oflots of tedious effort to try and straighten it all out.

As if there isn't enough of that malarkey already in daily life.

To think some thieving little chav could be using my personal info as a drinks mat!:rant: :cry:

Do we blame the government, the civil service or TNT over this blunder? How much more of our personal info is floating around in unregistered post, CDs and memory sticks just waiting to end up lying in the street or left on a bus for anyone to find??:rant:

I just got home from work to hear this on the BBC news and I for one am absolutely disgusted at this huge display of incompetence. 25 million records??!! All held upon just two CD's. And apparently sent by internal mail with being recorded or registered. Some one, or possibly more than just one, is in a position to be held accountable here :rant:

Why the surprise?

uk.gov knows fvck all about IT.
That's why they keep spending
billions on systems that don't work.

How easy would it be to install a PGP
virtual drive on these laptops?

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

No secure networks then for transferring data?
These unemployable ex teachers who are now government ministers have always been mug punters. No idea how the big industrial world works. Blinded by big money, no integrity at all.
I see the chief of Customs and revenue has resigned.

Don't forget guys, if anyone gets an email in a 'Nigerian accent' requesting your National Insurance details so that they can be 'checked with the National Register', don't reply to it! :rolleyes:
