According to the reports of the Daily Star, the Ministry of Defense mistakenly disclosed some highly confidential data of the British Government. This is the second time that the department is committing the same kind of mistake.
The ministry posted an in-house report called Air Defense and Air Traffic Systems Radar Transportation Study – Part 2, on the website of the Parliament. The report consisted of some clandestine paragraphs. These paragraphs when copied on another document were comprehensible. It is the Daily Star that notified the gaffe done by the Ministry of Defense. The blacked-out content consisted of information about the methods of elevation that was not supposed to be revealed.
As per Graham Cluley, a computer security expert at the web safety firm Sophos, “One hopes that they have learnt their lesson by now and provided an easy-to-understand guide for staff on how to properly redact documents”. He further suggested that before posting any important and secret content, one must ensure that the extremely confidential facts that have been blacked are removed from the content.
After being notified about their mistake, the Ministry of Defense authorities removed the content from the website and posted the correct adaptation of the data. The Ministry has proved its carelessness in handling important information.
