GERMANY'S SPIEGEL magazine reported that a hard drive bought on Ebay
contained info on what to do in hostage situations, how to handle
kidnappings and security details on politicians.

The magazine said that a high level investigation has been launched
into how a student in Potsdam bought the drive containing confidential
information on police measures and names of crisis management
professionals in the Brandenburg police.

The investigation will check whether the drive ended up on Ebay by
accident or as the result of a crime.

The information found is normally restricted to top spooks, the head
of the police and the Minister of the Interior's team.
