Personal Data Exposed on the Internet (Transparencia Activa)

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

update.

We sent a letter to our contact at the interior ministry regarding the problem. He responded immediatly, and sent an inquiry to the person in charge of it at immigration. He said he would get back to us as soon as he got a response from them. By the way, this is a top down goverment inquiry so we would expect it to get some attention from immigration. Will let you guys know, when I know.

I guess the Chilean IT guys don't know what a robot file :) A simple command in it would make Google stop indexing the files. They are publicly accessible still but at least Google isn't broadcasting them.

Many Chilean sites don't even resolve properly without putting www. in front of the domain. But that is usually not a big deal as most sites are a Flash highway to hell.
Generally, just a SPAM KILLER. You are on your own in this forum. My personal mission here is done.

BUT when necessary, by way of ridicule and truth revelation we shalt do war.

Below please find an excerpt from the reply by the "Sección jurídica Departamento de Extranjería y Migración" to the inquiry sent online about two weeks ago by a friend of a friend of mine (not sure if under real name).

"...Agradecemos su email informándonos de la situación de los datos publicados en el sitio de transparencia activa en cumplimineto de la Ley N°20.285. Ya hemos tomado algunas medidas para evitar que se repita en el futuro. Además, hemos informado de dicha situación a nuestra División de Informática, con el objeto de resolver lo señalado por usted..."

"...Thank you for your email informing us of the status of the data published on the site of active transparency as per Law 20,285. We have already taken some steps to avoid a repeat in the future. In addition, we reported the situation to our Information Technology Division, in order to solve the point made by you..."


If anyone could please compose/edit the robots.txt file for their servers, and forward it to the Information Technology Division, it would be great. There must be a couple of more directories added. They also have to move elsewhere (and to 404) all the PDFs and TIFs.
