Issue/Introduction

We bring your urgent attention to our masking problems as some fields are not being masked the same way as last month and also some other fields not being masked at all on our Mainframe Z-DT.

For your investigation I have included sixteen files, eight of them from October 19th execution (D211019...TXT) and eight from our most recent execution on November 22nd (D211122...TXT).

Looking through the compare files D211122.MSK.COMPARE you will quickly notice the differences/anomalies between last months masking and our most recent masking, also if you take a look at the audit file D211122.MSK.AUDIT.TXT you will also see that certain fields have not been masked which is also an anomaly.

For example, take a look at the field containing ST-MACHIN-DANS LE PERDU or field containing 1224453645777787 and many other fields that have not been masked.
