You might have seen this story : ...600000 Norwegians..

Tele2 operates in 22 European countries. It provides broadband
services and lot more. And maintains utterly insecure websites (or
uses the dreaded OS for safety critical applications). These M$windows
users cannot distinguish between hackers and crackers...

..."It said they had used a weakness on the website of the telephone
operators Tele2 to procure the national personal identity numbers and

The information would enable the hackers to change the addresses of
the people concerned so as to intercept their mail, or order goods on
their account. "...
