Wow.

That seems about an order of magnitude or two more than most fines... per personal ID leaked!

In fact, it shows how leaking more customer data is cheaper than leaking less... if they'd protected half those accounts, it would now cost them £12 per person. But if they leaked twice as much, it brings the fine down to £3 each... ;)
