B&Q data leak exposes information on 70,000 thefts from its stores, including names of suspected offenders

A database of 70,000 offender and incident logs was only supposed to be accessible internally within UK hardware store B&Q, but was instead exposed for anyone to access – no password required.

So you’d expect B&Q to fix this pretty quickly after being told about the problem, right?
