The office of the Data Protection Commissioner, which aims to protect people's privacy, has been the subject of a security breach.

A blogger succeeded in getting access to information on the commissioner's website, before it was officially released.

Details of the Data Protection Commissioner's Annual Report for 2007 were published on an Irish blog yesterday.

The full report was released at 11am this morning and is available on the commissioner's website.
