About the cause:

Public Address broke the story that tens of thousands of documents from MSD servers were publicly available through kiosks at WINZ offices around the country. Sensitive information, from staff pay and fraud investigations through to the location of CYFS houses and children's names and prescriptions were left open to the public.

This story involved me camping out at WINZ offices around Wellington over several days, then another several days going through thousands of documents to determine the scope of the breach. If you liked the story, a donation would be greatly appreciated.
