The Perils of P2P

2005-03-28 21:03:45.709565+00 by petronius 4 comments

Maybe the RIAA is right and P2P file sharing is a bad idea. From the unlikely venue of Michelle Malkin comes the story of an avid file sharer who also disseminated his tax return files throughout the Web, including Social Security Number, address, bank account numbers and other juicy tidbits. Beware!

Weird, the first time I clicked on that link I got some bizarre error, now it seems to be working. If this happens to you, try going to http://michellemalkin.com/ first, then going to http://michellemalkin.com/archives/001830.htm

It seems that Google has changed their ranking scheme, or I can't come up with the right phrase just now, but I remember at some point the boys over at NTK noting that a phrase something akin to "personal and confidential" pulled up an amazing about of cool stuff. This might have been in conjunction with limiting the search space to .DOC or .XLS files...
