Companies House 217 Scam

This is very scary, companies house here in the UK is where all companies are registered and they hold a database of campany details. Apparently anyone can go up there and request form 217 and change the address of a company or even the names of the directors. Three businesses so far have had the address changed by hijackers who then ran up massive debt at the new fake address in the name of that company. How stupid is that, not a hard loophole to spot surely?
