Life British government blinds and throws Elton John address on the street By weekster Posted on January 2, 2020 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ The British authorities have accidentally put personal information online from people who have received an honorary title. This concerns personal or work addresses of around 1000 people, including Sir Elton John, politicians and police officers. The sensitive information would have been on the internet for about an hour, reports the BBC. The list of recipients of the so-called New Years Honors was published on Friday evening. “At first I thought everyone on the list had given permission to publish their personal addresses. But then I saw some rather sensitive names,” a man who saw the addresses told British broadcaster. The authorities have apologized for publishing the address details. The incident has been reported to data watchdog ICO, which can impose fines for such leaks. Contact is also made with those affected by the leak.
