The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation kept user complaints open

    Imagine. You file a complaint against a bad official, but you can’t do this anonymously. All your data is requested, and all this was stored in an open form, so that anyone could see it all.

    According to information from Vedomosti, due to a technical error on the website of the Investigative Committee of Russia, appeals of citizens filed through the Internet reception were published, the correspondent of Vedomosti accidentally found out. Complaints interspersed with the press service of the TFR were published on the department’s website in the “News” section. The earliest detected file (see screenshot) is dated July 12, 2010. In total, almost 30,000 calls to the Investigative Committee were available on the Internet until Wednesday evening, some of which contained personal data of complainants, which violates applicable law.
