‘Private data of thousands of Dutch people on the streets after corona-virusst’

Personal and medical information of at least tens of thousands of Dutch people are not properly secured. Its about people who had a corontest performed at U-Diagnostics, which took the tests for many large companies.

That reports Nieuwsuur. These include tourists who booked a holiday via TUI or Corendon, employees of Ahold, players of FC Utrecht, general practitioners and health care institutions and military personnel of Defence, according to the TV program.

Birth dates, passport numbers, social security numbers, email addresses, travel destinations and test results are not properly secured. According to Nieuwsuur, these are easy to see. Experts speak of a comprehensive data leak.

The data was shared in a WhatsApp group with 300 members and a poorly secured database. According to U-Diagnostics, sharing information in a group with only employees does not violate the privacy legislation, according to the company in a response.
