I don’t have the words to comment on this:
“The intimate details of thousands of junior doctors are left wide open on the Internet.” The report showed a spreadsheet displaying the sexual orientation, religion, criminal records, addresses, of MTAS applicants, which was freely available for anyone to see, or for any search-engine or data-trawler to harvest for hours or even days. I felt sick to my stomach as I watched.
“We apologise to any applicants whose details have been improperly accessed. This URL was made available to a strictly limited number of people making checks as part of the employment process”
– Department of Health statement
YOU DON’T FUCKING DO IT LIKE THAT!
Just because you haven’t told many people the URL doesn’t make it safe. The naivete is mind-numbing. My mind is refusing to work when I try to think about the literally criminal incompetence of the IT technical staff involved. I like to hope that they were good techies over-ruled by evil managers. But however it happened, I am breathless with anger about this.
I would show the turd covered in glitter picture again, but this doesn’t include any glitter.
