Latest glitch for UK's May - botched party app lets public log in as cabinet ministers

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party apologized on Saturday after releasing a phone app for the annual party conference that let members of the public log in as senior government ministers and view their personal details.

 Dawn Foster, a columnist with the Guardian newspaper, discovered that a flaw in the app allowed users to log in as anyone attending the party conference, simply by entering an email address.

It meant the mobile phone numbers of all those attending the four-day event - journalists, party members and lawmakers, including senior government ministers - could be accessed. On Twitter, Foster showed how she had been able to log into the system as former foreign secretary Boris Johnson.
