      Personal data of 1m bank customers found on secondhand computer sold on eBay for 35| News | This is London

      Personal details of more than a million bank customers have been found on a computer sold on eBay.

      Highly- sensitive information on American Express, NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland customers was stored on the machine's hard drive.

      It includes names, addresses, mobile phone numbers, bank account numbers, sort codes, credit card numbers, mothers' maiden names and even signatures.

      It was described as 'a data thief's treasure chest', with everything a criminal needs to assume a customer's identity - and clear out their bank account.

      The massive data loss - one of the worst ever in Britain - is a clear breach of the banks' obligation under the Data Protection Act to keep all personal information secure.

      I like the way it is only after the data has been missing for months does the truth finally come out.
