Centrelink has apologised to hundreds of users of the myGov web portal after their contact details were shared with hundreds of strangers – twice.
The Centrelink response:
“As a result of an administrative error, your email address was unintentionally sent using the Carbon Copy (CC) rather than the Blind Copy (BCC) function in an email to a number of other individuals who had also requested to create a new myGov account,” Mr Box wrote
“This meant that your email address was unintentionally disclosed to the other individuals to whom the email was sent.
“In an attempt to recall this email, regrettably, your email address was disclosed to these same recipients a second time.
Idiots. I love it when people in who live in an Exchange world think that “recall” actually does something.
