Police secret password blunder

`A NSW Police blunder has led to a database of email passwords – including those of the anti-terrorism chief and hundreds of journalists – published on the internet.

The names, email addresses and passwords of as many as 800 people who signed up to receive NSW Police media releases are listed on the database.

The list includes the password and email details of two of the state’s most senior counter-terrorism police officers, newly appointed Assistant Commissioner Nick Kaldas and Detective Chief Superintendent Mark Jenkins.

Mr Kaldas is regarded as the foremost terrorism expert among Australia’s police services.’
