Hadopi suspends TMG interconnection after security breach

Wednesday 18 May 2011 | 13:22 CET | News
French anti-piracy authority Hadopi has suspended its automatic interconnection to entertainment industry software and services provider Trident Media Guard (TMG) after unsecured data stored on a TMG test server was accessed and posted on the PastBin website. Hadopi told Telecompaper that as many as 5,000 files may have been compromised, but that it was unclear at this time whether they were related to the Hadopi process or to other TMG clients. Part of the company's work involves sending Hadopi the IP addresses of people suspected of downloading music and film rights holders' content illegally. TMG works under contract with rights holders' associations, rather than the public body. Hadopi said there would be no change to France's graduated response system to illicit downloads, also known as the "three strikes rule". According to Hadopi, "Questions have been asked. What is required are answers rather than hasty conclusions. This is what we are trying to do in collectively with rights holders and experts." Le Monde newspaper reported that staff from France's data protection agency, Cnil, accompanied by representatives from Hadopi visited TMG's headquarters to verify the situation.
