Oh no! This is awful!

Walgreen Co. announced today that a list of customers' e-mail addresses have been compromised due to a hacking into their databases, and are now warning customers to not respond to any e-mails from the 'company' that ask for credit card or Social Security numbers, as well as any other personal information!

According to an e-mail statement:

"We want to assure you that the only information that was obtained was your e-mail address. Your prescription information, account and any other personally identifiable information were not at risk because such data is not contained in the e-mail system, and no access was gained to Walgreens consumer data systems."

Phew!

Similar incidents have also happened recently to the McDonald's Corp. and Gawker.

Just terrible! We're just thankful that the hackers couldn't access anymore private information than they already have!

Hopefully whomever's behind this will be caught and dealt with accordingly - and soon!

Thoughts??

    This is exactly the type of thing Julian Assange wanted to happen. It's called anarchy. These hackers, who were encouraged to support Wikileaks by hacking certain websites, have had a taste of blood and now they want more and more. Perez, it's only a matter of time before one of them gets into your site, too. Most of these guys are just kids who are too dumb and naive to understand the consequences of their actions who are being taken advantage of by anarchists like Assange.

    Just last week I got one of those idiots pretending to be from Paypal that wanted all my credit info and I sent it onto to Paypal. The email looked quite legit, but you couldn't click on any of the links. How easy it would be to fall for that though? This time of year is ripe for this.

    I believe I deserve some coupons and/or gift cards for this horrible inconvenience!

    I think this is yet another quite clear example of the need in the current internet world of the importance to regularly change your details and keep your passwords complicated. As more and more things move online its important to keep your privacy.
