This has to be one of the biggest "autofill" errors in history. :eek:

The United States president, Barack Obama, the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, the Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, the Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, and the British prime minister, David Cameron, were among those who attended the Brisbane summit in November and whose details were exposed.

Dick heads.
Goes to show just how little attention is really paid to decent security rather than just making sure boxes are ticked.

It's sad that so little care is given to securing personal data...even when that personal data belongs to word leaders.

I wonder if there will be changes now... It's always been said that all us peons information leaks just happens. Nature of the business. Now that the big guys are, are they going to do something about it? That information needs to be more secure for sure.

I sure would hate to be the poor employee that did this.

Personal information of this sort should have been encrypted, with the password given by phone. That would have made an accidental email not even matter.

That's what you get when you pay the person to secure your most valuable information the least possible.
