The Tel Aviv District Attorney has charged six people, including a computer programmer formerly employed as a Social Affairs Ministry contractor, in connection with a massive data theft that exposed the personal details of millions of Israelis.
The theft, which took place in 2006, included the publication of detailed personal information on nine million Israelis, among them minors, deceased persons and citizens living abroad.
According to the indictment, Shalom Bialik, who had access to the database during his work at the ministry, copied the data and took a copy of the database home. Read full story here.
