Breach Disclosure of the Zeroeth Millennium

The BBC reports that the whereabouts of the legendary cave where Romulus and Remus, founders of Rome, were nursed by a she-wolf, Lupa, as foundlings.

The eight-meter-high cave was found buried sixteen meters under a previously-unexplored area of Palatine hill in Rome.

Although their home address has been made public, it is unclear if the Roman founders lost any other personal information such as tax ID numbers, bank information, or date of birth.

In related news, two disks in the UK have been lost with the personal details of 25 million Britons including “name, address, date of birth, National Insurance number and, where relevant, bank details.” This is everyone in the UK who receives a tax deduction from having children.

HMRC Paul Gray resigned over the incident (as if that will help). Liberal Democrat Acting Leader, Vince Cable, clucked: “why does HMRC still use CDs for data transmission in this day and age?” proving that he doesn’t read this blog. Mr Cable as well as Shadow Chancellor George Osborne predicted the end of the National ID Database as a result of this loss.

Commissioner of Obvious Information, Richard Thomas, said: “this is an extremely serious and disturbing security breach” and Chancellor Alistair Darling pointed out that at least no one had had fiber-optic endoscopes pushed into their houses unlike those Roman foundlings.

    Having recently both had cause to investigate a leaky pipe in an inconvenient spot and also had a colonoscopy, I can assure you that there are worse places than ones houses to have a fiber-optic endoscopes pushed!
