Interesting article about what sort of stuff is revealed...very comprehensive, 
includes security military and air force driver details.


Quote<< Falkvinge writes the incident “exposed and leaked every conceivable top 
secret database: fighter pilots, SEAL team operators, police suspects, people 
under witness relocation.” >>End of quote.


Quote<< As Thelocal 
reports<https://www.thelocal.se/20170717/swedish-authority-handed-over-keys-to-the-kingdom-in-it-security-slip-up>,
 the scandal didn't end there: the outsourcing deal gave IBM workers outside 
Sweden access to the transport agency's systems without proper security 
clearance.

Those staffers and contractors included personnel in the Czech Republic, who 
had access to all data and logs; while a company in Serbia managed firewalls 
and communications.>> end of Quote.


Quote<< TheLocal says a security agency report into the blunder is so heavily 
redacted that it's impossible to know if national security was compromised. 
However, Falkvinge says the database included national security information 
such as:

  *   Road and bridge loading capacity, which would indicate what routes are 
designed to act as ad-hoc airfields in a crisis; and
  *   ”Type, model, weight, and any defects of any and all government and 
military vehicles, including their operator”.>>End of Quote.
