See the ComputerWeekly article:
"Nine staff have been sacked from their local authority jobs for snooping on personal records of celebrities and personal acquaintances held on the core database of the government's National Identity Scheme.
They are among 34 council workers who illegally accessed the Customer Information System (CIS) database, which holds the biographical data of the population that will underpin the government's multi-billion-pound ID card programme."
- questions about the security issues with RFID chips in the ID cards mentioned in my previous blog post, and
- this interesting article I just came across where an "ethical hacker" recently obtained info from chipped ID cards in the USA.
