Description

The report showed the extension to which confidential information of Brazilians is unprotected. It showed sales of passwords for the access to the police database, trade of confidential information from the IRS, and negotiations involving private telephone information. Pretending to be another person, the reporter was able to buy even his own private telephone information on the black market, including all the calls he had made and received within 30 days.
