G20 World Leaders’ Personal Data Leaked

BBC News – March 30, 2015

The passport numbers and Visa details of 31 world leaders were accidentally emailed to the organisers of the Asian Cup in Australia before the G20 summit in Brisbane in November 2014. Those affected included US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

A worker at the Australian Department of Immigration sent the list by mistake.

Not hacking, not spying, not cyber-terror.
But an old-fashioned case of “clerical error.”
