Melbournet IT fails to uphold security of its customers

Well once again a company that holds our personal information after they have billed us for a service have stuffed up in what appears to be a case of human error. Melbourne IT, Australia's first domain register started sending out updates to its clients on Thursday only to be sending the wrong details to the wrong customers. Is this really what we pay for? how can they promise the security of our personal information or why do they even need such information. Some of Melbourne IT's clients had contacted them to find out whats going but they could not be assured that their details was or was not exposed to other people. Now it mite be fairly harmless it stil shows that us, humans need to play our part in security properly or it will fail regardless of all the other stuff. https://www.smh.com.au/it-pro/security-it/thousands-of-domain-registrars-customer-details-exposed-20111223-1p8us.html
