Thousands of Brits fall victim to data theft
,----[ Quote ]
| British law enforcement agents are trying to contact thousands of
| U.K. computer users who have fallen victim to a massive personal data
| The Metropolitan Police said on Tuesday that a computer seized in the
| U.S. had been found to contain personal information from around 2,300
| PCs based in Britain. This included e-mail addresses, passwords, credit
| card numbers and details of online transactions.
Imagine the inconvenience, the loss and the unnerving uncertainty. The BBC
says (backed by a survey) that people are more afraid of crackers than they
are of burglars. Look what Windows computing has brought upon us...
