B&Q 'exposed data about store thieves'

B&Q says it has taken action after being told that it exposed details of suspected store thieves to the net without password protection. He said the DIY chain had taken the data offline, but was unable to get a response from the company himself. "We have closed the issue down and are continuing to investigate how it occurred," a B&Q spokeswoman told the BBC on Monday. According to Lee Johnstone, chief executive of Ctrlbox Information Security, the exposed records included 70,000 offender and incident logs.
