Big brother is sharing data

Ooopsa, there is something ongoing in Australia. "Unprecedented volumes of personal information on millions of ordinary Australians are being shared between federal government departments under dramatic extensions of a little-known "data matching" scheme."

And they are detailed in their data collection - there is information about your religious affiliation and possible criminal conviction. This is okay, if you want to prevent terrorist attacks, but why should the tax department know about your religion? Do they think they are competing against churches, mosques or temples - pun intended.

Imagine, the fun, a hacker could have who is able to hack into the system Talk about identity theft. Or, if data gets accidentally lost or leagued on the web. Scary, because it happens.
