An intern working at German prison shared picture of the prison's master key to his buddies through WhatsApp. After German Brandenburg's state justify ministry found out about the incident, they ordered all the prison's locks to be changed.
According to Brandenburg's justice ministry, a skilled locksmith could be able to reproduce the prison masterkey just from the shared picture, so they couldn't take the risk that such incident would really happen.
The intern now has to pay for up to 50'000 euros (appx. $59'600) what it costs to replace all 600 locks in the prison complex. Also, his internship was terminated immediately.
