Thousands of cyber crime reports ‘stuck in computer backlog over security risks’

I can understand a quarantine system to protect the integrity of the reporting database, but this is a monumental failure to establish management process…:

[…] The software used screen reports to identify security risks and places any in quarantine which could have a “potentially significant threat to the security of the database” in order for them to be manually checked before being released.

The types of risks it searches for are those used by hackers to bypass security measures and attack databases, systems and websites like viruses and other malware.

This is to protect against reports submitted by members of the public which have been sent from unknowingly infected computers, as well as to root out malicious attempts to infiltrate the database.
