Did the Leveson website team ignore warnings about the risk of being hacked?

Following on from my earlier post about the Leveson Inquiry website hack I've been sent a copy of an email sent to the Leveson Inquiry website team that warns about the dangers of having open directories on the Leveson website:


As this post on the Something Awful forum shows directories were still open right up until the attack, so obviously the warning wasn't heeded
I have to admit, I noticed the wp-content folder and subfolders allowed directory listing a while ago. Didn't tell anyone, it was useful for checking when new stuff had been uploaded. They've fixed it now though.

  1. Thanks Brown for your latest work.

    I do not believe Bush and Murdoch have never met

    Here are three images... Blair , Murdoch and father Bush all with Cardinal Edgar.

    Blair, Murdoch and father Bush are Papal Knights, stands to reason George is also. Like father like son !
