Federal website leaked personal information

The CBC is reporting that an important government website had a significant security glitch that led to the disclosure of sensitive personal information of about 75 people. The site, Access Key, was launched on September 26 and the problem occurred within days. The error was reported by users and it took the site's operators a number of days before reporting it to the Privacy Commissioner. See: CBC News - Ottawa - Federal online glitch leaked private info.
