#UK Government #Data leak in 2015, users warned today.

unnamed (1)

A recent routine security review discovered a file containing some users’ names, emails and hashed passwords was publicly accessible on a third-party system.

The names, emails and hashed passwords in the file belong to users who registered on data.gov.uk on or before 20 June 2015.

This effectively means that the security breach probably happened on the the 20th of June 2015, and the UK government only discovered it now, 2 years later!
