Camera Sold On eBay Contained Spy Pics

When I say this camera was sold on eBay with “spy pics” on it…I really mean it. I’m not sure what is going on in the U.K. lately but we have seen several incidents lately (here and here) where PCs have been sold on eBay with sensitive info still on them, now we have MI6 spy pics on cameras? Sheesh!

A bidder, who bought the camera for £17 on the auction website, discovered photos of terror suspects, their names and fingerprints and even images of rocket launchers and missiles. The 28-year-old from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, only found the secret images when he downloaded his own holiday snaps from the Nikon Cool Pix device.
