New Zealand's Ministry for Culture and Heritage has announced the personal information of more than 300 citizens was compromised in a recent data breach of a ministry-commissioned webpage, Stuff reports. The ministry confirmed that a "coding error" exposed the citizens' information off applications for a sailing expedition. The compromised information included 228 passports, 55 driver licenses and 36 birth certificates, as well as secondary school IDs and residential visas. "It's very disappointing that we didn't know, and this was a mistake and I just apologise sincerely," Ministry Chief Executive Bernadette Cavanagh said, adding that the website was not a ministry-created website.
