Lime Pictures had been mistakenly displaying thousands of individual applicants‘ personal details on the job section of its website. […]
In fact, up until around mid-afternoon yesterday, the entire database containing the history of nearly 20,000 job applications was open for all to see.
By simply changing the ID number on the query string of the URL, many more personal details of individual applicants were revealed.
It is not known how long the website had been displaying the confidential information which included home addresses, telephone numbers, and salary details. Shortly after The Reg spoke to the TV firm, however, the job section of the site was taken down.
