Animal welfare: dozens of confidential complaints revealed by mistake!

Following a computer hiccup, the animal welfare site in Wallonia displayed the data of people who had lodged a complaint of mistreatment.

Unfortunate IT quack for the official portal for animal welfare in Wallonia. This Friday, dozens of normally confidential documents were accessible to the general public on simple search, and this, for an undetermined period.

Among the visible documents: animal abuse complaint forms showing the name of the complainant, his contact details, the reason for the complaint and the contact details of the persons concerned. Particularly annoying given the sensitive nature of the cases in question the explicit desire of the complainants not to have their identity made public.
