An EU User submitted a request for a copy of his personal data to Epic Games under the GDPR. Epic Games sent him the data, but they also sent the data to another random person. This wrong person let Epic know. If this good Samaritan turned out to be someone of lesser moral fiber, Epic Games’ epic fail would have created a major issue.
