It's not ICT's data so it really isn't their problem. The union have the power (and only they should have the power) to set the correct permissions on the files. So you want to blame someone blame the union for failing to protect their data.

Meh. The undergraduate office somehow managed to photocopy someone's exam transcripts onto the back pages of a set of lecture notes. Looks like I should never have told this place my real name.

One of our sets of lecture nots had an email from the lecturer to a student embedded in the middle, complete with names and email addresses, etc. It was in EVERY copy of the lecture notes.

There was never any concrete evidence of Project Omega. People shouldn't believe everything they hear in the union corridors.

However, you can probably believe everything you hear in SAC.

Watch out for more on this story in felix tomorrow.
