According to Icrontic, for a brief period of time yesterday, anyone who tried to access Norway's Altinn e-government portal found themselves logged in as a 36-year-old Oslo resident named Kenneth.

"Visitors would be able to see not only his financial information, but also his wife’s and the details of the company he worked for," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.

"It appears that the error emerged because Kenneth logged in to his account that day and all his information got somehow stored in the server’s cache memory," Kovacs writes.

Go to "Norwegian Government Portal Exposes Man’s Financial Data" to read the details.
