Article: Australian Navy exposed sensitive gynaecological information on the web

Australian IT - Navy women exposed on the web (Cameron Stewart, DECEMBER 20, 2003)

From Australia - Oops:

THE federal Government has apologised after the names of naval women who have undergone gynaecological treatment were published on a government website.

In an apparent breach of privacy laws, the personal details of at least six navy women have been listed in gazettes that can be accessed by the public.

The information includes the names of the women and the cost of their gynaecological treatment as well as the naval base at which they work and the name and address of the doctor who treated them.
