    While surfing google I kind of stumbled upon (I was just testing if my search query was one that would discover anything 'hidden') a database of a french golf resort. The database is unprotected and contains over 1800 users with adress, email and login passwords.

    Since i'm not an evil man I'd like to report this to the site owner. There's only one problem: The website is French.
    I can't write french (I always preffered german on highschool) and I know about the online translators. But I want my email to be trustworhty and not in broken french. This would probably result in not opening or believing my email.

    Is their anyone that can write (or knows a website that has) a french email in which you simply state that you've found a SQL backup which contains all usernames and passwords and which must be deleted ASAP?

    How about simply using English? Pretty much everyone in France should be able to speak it, even if they won't admit it... [​IMG]
