Telenet website owners had their info published

http://www.security.nl/article/12802/1/Belgische_ISP_Tele...

 

first it happened during 15 minutes, but that was enough for 3 people to download 600 MB of logs about the users and files of that webserver

 

These files were NOT encrypted.

 

Following the publication of some details it is clear that some users used hidden directories to place songs and other files that weren't supposed to be public. They are now in the 'public arena'.

 

Telenet did not really say sorry and did not announce a more thorough securityplan nor the encrypting of this kind of data.

 

Telenet itself did not describe the data that were lost and only reacted to publications of parts of it by one of the downloaders, so how sure can you be what is in the files ?
