Queensland, Australia police allegedly accidentally release firearm owner data

Police release firearm owner details in data breach
Queensland police have accidentally released details of hundreds of firearms owners in an embarrassing privacy and security breach, which is under investigation.

Compounding the error, the move was an attempt to warn firearms owners to secure their properties following a spate of thefts of guns.

The Queensland Police Service has acknowledged the breach "has caused confusion and anguish and the service apologises for this", saying it had launched an immediate inquiry into how it happened.

Sounds like the gun owners affected should push for a state parliament investigation. If criminals know who has guns, gun owners could become a target for robbery.

I think he's in NSW but I could be wrong.

Sorry, NSW = New South Wales. Auckland - that's Kiwiland. :)

:smart:
That joke would probably work better to piss off Kiwis than Aussies.
Just like it’s easier to get a rise out of Canadians than Americans when mixing up their countries.
