È il 2008 e siamo solo a metà marzo.

Quello che segue è un elenco sicuramente parziale della mole di dati sensibili esposti a terzi in violazione della privacy, a causa di negligenze, incidenti, furti o cracking negli USA.

Nell’intero 2007 i casi accertati sono stati 329 e coinvolgono milioni di persone. Questi dati sono raccolti nell’Attrition.org Data Loss Archive and Database. L’archivio è pubblico.
