About 547,000 cus­tomer records were leaked on­line re­cently by a dis­grun­tled em­ployee at the Bupa Global di­vi­sion in the UK, with 19,595 Aus­tralians amongst those af­fected. The health in­sur­ance provider ad­mit­ted that the em­ployee had “in­ap­pro­pri­ately copied and re­moved some cus­tomer in­for­ma­tion”, like names, dates of birth and con­tact in­for­ma­tion, and had “made it avail­able to other par­ties”. Bupa will be tak­ing le­gal ac­tion against the em­ployee and has been con­tact­ing the af­fected cus­tomers to apol­o­gise. SS
