Oops: Sentech Confidentiality Breach

Watch those attachments!

allAfrica.com: South Africa: Sentech Confidentiality Breach:

"Sentech has e-mailed a database of MyWireless users to some of its clients, in what one user described as a 'serious breach of confidentiality'.

Astonished MyWireless clients forwarded copies of the database to ITWeb this morning, saying it had been attached to an e-mail they received from Sentech at the weekend. The e-mail purported to contain an attachment outlining Acceptable Use Policy. The Excel database includes names, addresses and contact numbers of around 1 500 users.

User groups who have campaigned to get Sentech to improve its MyWireless service said this morning that they were hoping to arrange a meeting with Sentech soon. 'We don't want to fight with Sentech over things like this,' one said. 'We just want the service to work properly.'"
