Wow, that's an interesting read. Most web users today, I think, know not to
give out their personal information lightly. I can see from this report how
important it is to make sure we approach the reputable companies that have
our personal information and verify that they have hack-proof data bases and
don't just offer our information to anyone.

On another note, lately I have been getting tons of spam from corrupt
sources pretending to be everything from PayPal to Microsoft. These types of
email frauds are pretty darn convincing. I can see how easy theft identity
can be from a Internet novice's perspective. Perhaps discussing it more
amongst professionals will help educate the public more.

Thanks Roy for the Heads Up.

About a month ago, a colleague of mine got furious not only to have
discovered (through Google of course) his full name in a public page of an
employment agency. but also his mug up, which was put up on the Web site and
snatched by Google Images. The page is no longer up, but Google Cache lives

I am deeply concerned about the performance of spamassassin. I hear that
GMail have similar issues. Heaps of spam are getting through to accounts
that have no challenge/response filter. These account were virtually
spam-free until about 1-2 weeks ago. The spam arrives from what are
supposedly-captured Windows boxes across the world. I estimate I absorb
nearly 100 per day, which makes reviewing of the spam boxes impractical and
very, very shallow.

Not when you bear in mind that these companies don't contact their
clients by email. That's the thought to hold in your head.
