Career database 'wide open' to hijacking
An on-line database containing the career and contact details of over 22 million business people can be edited by anyone.
The database - put together by US company Eliyon - is extracted from information published on the net (press releases, electronic news services, SEC filings and other online sources etc.) and complied into a single searchable archive. Most of the profiles are incomplete but data covered includes a person's contact information, employment history, board memberships, educational background and other details.
