Labor Department Admits Data Leak, Says Claims Data Was Released 15 Hours Early Due To "Glitch"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As we reported first earlier, moments after today's market moving initial claims data was posted, we observed that it had been leaked previously as various other data aggregators, but not the main wires, had looked at the DOL's website and found today's claims number had been posted at least 15 minutes before the formal release, and possibly far prior to that. Minutes ago, the DOL, already embroiled in numerous data disclosure SNAFUs was force to add epic humiliation to mere modest humiliation, and admit that the data was indeed released before its official embargo lift time of 8:30 am. 15 hours before. And whose fault is it? Why a "computer glitch" of course. In other words, computers now have the capacity to not only destroy market makering firms, to push key currency pairs at will, to cause stock market flash crashes, to scuttle mega-IPOs, but also to released key data at will, and entirely on their own. Needless to say, there is never a human being behind any of these errors, which are always in the passive voice. It is always the computer's "fault."

From Bloomberg:

  • U.S. Labor Dept. says in e-mail its automated system inadvertently triggered release of data.
  • Claims data were posted 5:10pm Washington D.C. time yesterday
  • Dept. conducting internal review of new testing procedure

The real question is does anyone even care? If the DOL release key labor data one day in advance to everyone, it is idiotic to believe that all those reponsible for data dissemination do not, at a price, distribute the data to various asset managers who are desperate to get an information arbitrage at any cost over everyone else.

Watching the system implode under its own weight has become an exercise in futility and sadness.

The problem is that the early message was really intended to JUST go to Goldman Sachs but was accidentally sent to a other recipients also.   Then, they had to come up with an explanation of why non-GS insiders were also receiving the intended message.   GS is the one that is demanding the explanation from the BLS on how others could have received the advanced info.

It just clicked in my head, there is a reason for the glitches.... I thought it was an outside job-  No, it is an inside job...

 

What! There is a better way to not pay for the Market Crashing. They will not have to pay for those going short "or anybody for that matter who is making money on the way down".

It was a GLITCH "NO MONEY FOR YOU", We don't have to pay, its not our fault.

 Market is not crashing because of fundamentals, its crashing because of all of those glitches we put in there!!!

They keep talkng about all the $$$ on the sidelines. People will NOT return to the stock market until they know their money is "safe.

They will not feel their money is safe until the criminals involved in the fraud have been punished.

JPM, LIBOR, Corzine, GS.....

BILLION$$$ of dollar "disappear", and the companies involved pay a $5 million fine......to the govt. or lawyers. LOL

Lehman, AIG, MF Global, Peregrine Financial, the latest (trouble) is Knight Capital, and how many before,  and how many to come? They stole all their clients money under the guise of a "bad investment."

Don't be fools.

It's not a “technology  glitch".

It's not a “trading anomaly”.

It's the new business model.

Say it was "lost", keep the clients money, congress never punishes anyone.

Any charges????

Where is Jon Corzine?

People will wake up when Wells Fargo or B of A do it.

"Sorry....we 'lost' your money!"

Money doesn't get "lost".

If someone "loses" it, someone "makes" it.

That money didn't disappear.

Your bank could do it with your bank acct., Fidelity could do it with your retirement acct., Schwab could do it with your investment acct.....

You'd be broke, they'd be rich, we'd have no recourse, the clowns in Washington would do nothing.

The only reason to carefully craft a lie is if the liar needs to be believed or to retain credibility. The BLS knows neither is required any longer since the lies are only believed (for 500 nanoseconds) by the HFT algo choir.

Just as in most OSs , most of the middle-ware languages , like PHP for this site, and Coldfusion, which I work on, has a  scheduled events function. If one wanted to display  data at a set time , code could be written that would cause the code to execute based on the time in the code and how it compares to the server clock. When the Server clock agrees with the time inputted by the user or hard coded by the programmer, it retrieves the data and writes it to a HTML page.

All Good right?

The article was complaining that they were blaming a computer when it was obvious it was human error. That's 100% true. A Computer "glitch" at some point in time is caused by a human. Perhaps the programmer left it up to management to enter the time and day they wanted to have it displayed. I've seen many programs that ask you to select a time based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). That has a high dweeb factor in it, but the reality is, no one really knows what the time difference is of their locale with GMT. So it was either someone entered the wrong time for the code to execute or the programmer got cute and put GMT in and the Person responsible for the release got even cuter and guessed what the difference was with GMT, instead of say using Google, and crack boom another major fuck-up

All human error and not just any error, it's a series of Douche-Muffin errors.

Don't worry. They still blue-screen and lock up. That part hasn't changed.

It's just that now when they do it costs the US economy like $200B in unintended damages, closes 3 Florida banks at random, knocks .01% off the GDP, and phones your mom and tells her you are still seeing that trashy slut she warned you about.

This is what comes from globalization. And from running anything of importance on Microsoft Windows. The world is ruined and your mother is worried sick you'll get the clap.

"Glitch" Details?

How about the BLS explains the details of what the "Glitch" was for one - details in detail. -Coding, inability to tell time, one set of code for one set of receipients another set of code for other receipients and in the latter case why would that be? Who, why, where, when, how - just the basics.

Accountability would require a better explanation than the amorphous misdirecting the error to computers with no one taking responsibility and fueling the blather factor which as it beomes a flaccid dick fades away, no use to anyone, thus serving the purpose of purposeful liars and managing misdirectors.

Furthermore, aren't 'early recipients' of the BLS numbers under an embargo of that information until the release time? So questions arise as well as to the dissemination of number data received early and disseminated before the release or was it the unembargo'd received the heads up? 

The points made here as to the (lack of) relevance, accuracy, usefulness, meaningfulness and potential political manipulation of BLS numbers are well taken as we all sink and then swim in a quagmire of who gives a shit.

Incidentally this is one of the few ways that actually exists it is possible "to know the future" -not- when somebody who knows what a number will be tells you before telling others. Technically however this is knowing the past before its announced - so knowing the future as impossible remains intact. --Explained for those who have lost track of the ontic meaning of and their relationtionship to time and truth of which I am sure there are not but a few.

Welcome to worse than Argentina, where at least everyone receives the same distorted economic data.

"What me worry?"- Alfred E. Neuman

In a politically correct world the questions after the facts aren't even good questions since everyone is trained not to ever answer a question directly and as a consequence becomes unable to formulate a good/relevant question.  Its all so very sad - trying to care and all. Words only sounds or symbols that don't touch the reality they pretend to be directed towards because reality itself has come to have no meaning.

BATS's strikes again! I guess as long as it didn't start trading, (if you want to call it that) we should be okay!

 

Seriously, if it were a real glitch, it would have advertised the real unemployment rate of 19.5 %.
