Canada fixes passport Website flaw

Website tells all


Canada's
passport office has fixed a security flaw that allowed its Website to provide personal data from all passport applicants.

An Ontario, Canada man had discovered last week that by changing one character in the Internet address displayed on his Web browser, he could view the application forms of others.

Foreign Minister, Maxime Bernier, told Parliament his officials had immediately contacted the head of Passport Canada and the problem has been fixed.

The Website only stored information temporarily, and the files the Ontario man had accessed were those of people making applications via the Internet during the same time period.
