UK Special Forces soldiers' personal data was floating around WhatsApp in a leaked Army spreadsheet


Quite apart from the Special Forces issue, I'd be quite worried about the specialisations being displayed.

Knowing that SGT Smith is, e.g., a Networks specialist working in a formation of interest would probably make her or him of considerable interest to certain Foreign Intelligence Services, either immediately or at least work keeping an eye on to see where they go next.

This is both an OPSEC and an INFOSEC breach of pretty monumental proportions.
