Job-related information belonging to hundreds of thousands of individuals was exposed online after Capgemini inadvertently made public a database of Michael Page, a brand of UK-based global recruitment company PageGroup.

France-based Capgemini, which last year had a revenue of nearly 12 billion euros, specializes in consulting, technology and outsourcing services. The company, contracted by the recruitment giant for IT services, unintentionally exposed a Michael Page backup database containing an estimated 30 Gb of SQL files that could have been accessed by anyone who knew what to look for.
