It’s a common mistake: you mean to put a bunch of email recipients in the “bcc” field to hide their identity from other recipients, but instead you put them in the “cc” field. Oops — particularly when you’re ZTE trying to survey buyers of your Firefox OS phone. According to multiple people on Twitter, the Chinese handset maker managed on Friday to out the identities of hundreds of customers in this fashion. Hilariously, the email includes the line: “As always, we treat the issue of privacy with utmost seriousness — any personal information you have supplied us will remain confidential.”
