Demon Internet has sent out a spreadsheet containing the personal
details of thousands of customers with one of its new ebills.
The spreadsheet - which has been forwarded to PC Pro - contains email
addresses, telephone numbers and what appears to be usernames and
passwords for the ebilling system.
The spreadsheet was sent to a PC Pro reader who was staggered to
discover it attached to an email explaining how to use the new system.
Demon is refusing to disclose how many customers have received the
spreadsheet, although it says it's less than a few thousand.
The Excel spreadsheet - which isn't password protected - contains more
than 3,600 records. It includes the full name of the customers, email
addresses, telephone numbers and names of the customers' businesses.
Police forces, NHS trusts and government officials are among the email
addresses listed in the database.
