It appears Sky were required by a Court Order to divulge relevant customer details and did so in an encrypted form. It appears said law firm allegedly may not have maintained relevant security protocols

Not just Sky. Most UK ISP's. The court orders were obtained on a very dubious technicality (Court order obtained on the basis of criminal proceedings investigation then only civil claims are made)

ACS Law's website was hit by a DOS attack and went down; it came back up with a default page containing the firm's email backup file for the world to see.

Poor security and poor procedures. Rightly so ACS Law themselves are now under investigation for a gross breach of the data protection act.

One wonders why private client and case files are even linked to the website which should be nothing more than a marketing shot to the world

Lots of (unknown, probably music) near me.

How can they accuse people of downloading something when they don't even know what it is?
