German federal finance agency's web server wide open
Having been informed of serious security problems by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC), Germany's federal finance agency has taken its online service offline.
According to the CCC, for several years internet users have been able to set up their own quotes for financial transactions from a web browser and to alter, amend and add to quotes provided by the agency.
What is not clear is whether or not this has occurred in practice.
