I have provided 18 references so far. The reference request form
specifically asks that the referee print off a copy of the reference, sign
it and send it to the candidate. There has never been any suggestion that
references are intended to be confidential. It has been my practice for
years to allow job applicants to see any reference I write at their request,
if they wish to do so.

An IT security specialist friend of mine had a look at the system. Here's
what she said:
1. It's well-known now that reference providers are given their own e-mail
address as a log-in and one's e-mail address is virtually public knowledge
2. The passwords are not strong and her programme is able to crack such
within a couple of minutes
So, she expects it won't only be candidates who can read this on line...
