    Check out some of the Register's comments:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/11...tion/comments/

    Have to laugh at those who are arguing over the number of rows Excel can handle and if the database is compressed !!!

    Plus your bid get a mention Tech_Guy. Your famous now too - you like me have got a mention on The Register. Mine resulted in quite a few E-mails from Lawyers saying they would happily represent me when I said those things about Sophos......

    Am I bovvered? Last year, someone at County Hall had their laptop stolen containing all of our payroll details, so mine are public domain already. I heard today, that something similar happened to one of the big Buiding Sicieties and they were fined the best part of a million quid!

    I'd bet that part of the problem is mass adoption of Gate's systems caused this - allowing untrained low level techies to be able to download the enitre database.
    Do you really think this could have happened in the old mainframe days?

    Some people can never learn that above all else secuirty has to be the top issue no matter where you work at even if it is a major company or your typical dell boy and this proves it now lots of people are going to suffer because of this "accident" aka lack of secuirty.

    has anyone tried downloading it? I'm presuming its a hoax but how funny would that be?!

    probably not very funny if I've suddenly got diddly squat in my account
