WINZ flaw existed for all of Labour’s tenure

So intent Labour has been on blaming National for the WINZ security flaw that they seem to have overlooked that it existed for the entire time they were in government…and they did NOTHING to fix it for 9 years.

Computer terminals used for 13 years by job seekers at Work and Income offices had the same security flaw as the self-service kiosks at the centre of the major privacy breach at Winz.

An independent report has revealed the computers used between 1998 and 2011 were also connected to Ministry of Social Development’s corporate computer network allowing access to private information.
