Prosecutor resigns over hacked PC

Wednesday, 13 October 2004, 1:20 PM EST

A leading Dutch prosecuter resigned yesterday after hackers entered his mail box and revealed yet another classified letter addressed to the public prosecutor's office.

This was the second security lapse in recent days for Joost Tonino, a specialist prosecutor in white collar crime. Just last week Tonino was left red faced after it emerged he had put his old PC out with the trash. The hard disk, which should have been destroyed, contained hundreds of pages of confidential information about high profile cases, as well as his credit card number, social security number and personal tax files.
