It has come to our attention that internal IBM information is available on your blog sites. Apparently, you have acquired a draft document from an internal IBM repository that is clearly a breach of internal security. We ask that you replace it with the final PDF that we made available externally, the contents of which are also on our Web site at http://www.lotus.com/products/product4.nsf/wdocs/hannoverfaq. As valued Business Partners, we trust that you will comply with this request.
- I did not even know that I am a valued Business Partner.
- I don't have the document on my site and never had.
- I don't think it was a draft.
- The cat seems to be out of the bag.
Update: Chris Miller explains:
I received the Word Document from our regional IBM Business Partner rep in announcement of the Hannover Project the same day the IBM site went live. This was sent to all business partners in the region. I am unaware of any internal security breach as I received this directly from our IBM channel representative.
Verdict: Clueless cover-up.
It sounds like its really worth reading the red strikethrough lines.
To 2.: Isn't linking a document the same as providing it on the own site?
Most amusing, do you suppose they stopped for breath between a) shooting themslves in one foot the first time and b) reloading both barrels in readiness for the other?
FWIW Marius - I read it - it wasn't worth it.
Yes, I finally checked email today to find the same letter. I responded with the exact location I got it. An IBM business partner channel rep that sent that document to everyone in the entire midwest region of the US. Ahh well. I am being assimilated and posting the pdf instead of the doc file.
Received the same Word-Document. Seems they mailed it out to everybody.
