'MI6 terror photographs' found on £17 camera bought on eBay


www.dailymail.co.uk

Police are investigating the eBay auction of a digital camera said to have contained MI6 images of terror suspects.
Suspects' faces, names and fingerprints, as well as snaps of rocket launchers and missiles, were discovered by an online bidder who bought the camera for £17, it was reported.
The 28-year-old only found the images when he downloaded his own recent holiday snaps from the Nikon CoolPix.
He told police and was shocked when Special Branch officers arrived at his home in Hemel Hempstead, Herts, days later to seize the camera.
Officers are said to have made five visits to his home in the last week to quiz him and his family.
The Foreign Office said today: 'We can confirm a police investigation is under way.'

Seems a scary trend in security breaches in the UK with electronic data these days.

Whats also scary was if this guy didn't notice the extra pics remaining on his camera and then got picked up for them at an airport or something he could be in gitmo before you could getgo.

Imagine trying to explain that you just bought the camera from someone on ebay while being waterboarded or having your testicles electrocuted. Would be tricky indeed! Again only funny because its scary and true!

Absolutely staggering.

The government can't even look after it's own data properly and yet they're always arguing they want even more of ours to look after and centralise?

Of course, the government will spin this as an example of why they need all our data. 'We, er, need your data to see whether you've got our data'. What's the bet that this poor sop had all his DNA taken and is now on a database somewhere or other because of their mistake? Farcical.
