New Data Leaks section



I’ve added yet another category for “data leaks”. This is where I’ll put news along the lines of X company leaked data on yyyyy customers. It’s unfortunate that this is something that likely happens daily. There is no way that I can keep up with EVERYTHING, but I’ll try to post the bigger events in this category. I have many customers that say they’re concerned about people getting their credit card or bank numbers and for that reason they don’t do ANY transactions online or have any of that data on their computers. Well, I hate to break it to you, but the genie is already out of the bottle, because the companies that we do business with (ON OR OFFLINE) have all your data on computers and prohibiting yourself from online transactions is NO guarantee that you won’t have your data stolen or be a victim of Identity theft.
