Many countries have a very strict data control act which requires security .
Clearly WADA or whoever is , in law , the data controller , has failed .
Does this mean the end of doping control ?
Banks have an incentive to security. Government agencies, not so much so.

Good question. Many things reported as "hacks" by the news media are actually situations in which someone has guessed (or stolen) a password. I don't consider that to technically be a hack, a term that I reserve for someone who has through superb skill broken into a server and downloaded a database or a trove of e-mails.

Has WADA failed or have these idiots given away their passwords by falling for a simple fishing scam?
The new ADAMS project, which was initiated in July 2014 and will go live by end-2016, is being developed with an athlete-centered approach and will provide users with:
â€¢ an optimized user interface, along with improved performance and functionality;
â€¢ an investigation platform (in line with the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code); and
â€¢ a universal interface to allow organizations to extract information from, or feed to ADAMS.
It's sad and it's also incredibly stupid.

Doping has existed in sport for 100+ years it's a fact of life so my radical suggestion is to stop testing and make doping perfectly legal.
Sad for a medical professional to suggest this............
