Witless Protection Scheme

In a stunning example of losing data you really shouldn't have, the Ministry of Justice today coughed to having lost - yes you've guessed it - four CDs! Only one of which might have been encrypted/password protected.

The discs contained details on 55 defendants and other restricted information, "potentially including" highly sensitive details of alleged victims of and witnesses to crimes. Good work there chaps, can't see the criminal underworld being interested in those details at all then.

At least this time the package was sent by recorded delivery, rather than by the usual method of introducing information into the wild, TNT.
