What, again !!
I can't believe that once again, private information has been pinched ("lost from a storeroom") - what a load of bullsh*t. Password protected can be got around; it needs proper encryption. I guess the saving grace (if true) is that no names were on there. As a slightly unrelated side note I did some work for the MoD but at lunchtime everyone disappeared leaving me alone with many computers with no screen saver passwords. I'm so glad we've got a good secure defence strategy.
