Information about numerous international investigations against terrorist groups, the European police Europol, was mistakenly leaked to the Internet.
About it writes on Wednesday, 30 November, news Agency Reuters referring to the Dutch Zembla TV channel.
Europol has not yet commented on this information, however, his representative, wil van, Gemert said that he was aware of the leak. He believes that this mistake was not noticed by anyone except employees of Zembla, but does not exclude other options.
According to the information of the channel, the blame for this blunder lies on a former employee of European police. In the instructions, Europol, he not only delivered with electronic documents relating to 54 investigations, but and copied the data on an unencrypted hard drive of a computer connected to the Internet. However, he did not give itself the report that documents are available to users.
It is reported that we are talking about the investigations conducted between 2006 and 2008, the Madrid bombings, airplane attacks and terrorist acts, which have not been reported by the General public-about seven hundred pages, which, among other things, contain the names and phone numbers of the suspects.
