Podcast: Interview with the man who bought 'that PC' on eBay

Interview with the man who discovered the personal bank details of more than one million people on a computer bought on eBay last week.

The response of the Financial Services Authority and the Information Commissioner’s Office has been disappointing, says the man who discovered the personal bank details of more than one million people on a computer bought on eBay last week.

Andrew Chapman, an IT manager at the University of Oxford, found the details when exploring a second-hand computer he had bought to store music files.

ComputerWeekly’s Warwick Ashford spoke to Chapman to get his perspective on the discovery.
