AOL Data Breach Content Details

As Count Floyd would say, scary stuff boys and girls.  CNET has published a short sample and analysis of the material that was part of the AOL data breach.  It's both scary and amusing, depending on which end of the data stream one happens to be on.

Examples:

2005 us open cup florida state champions
how to get revenge on a ex
how to get revenge on a ex girlfriend
how to get revenge on a friend who f---ed you over
replacement bumper for scion xb
florida department of law enforcement
crime stoppers florida

and

how to tell your family you're a victim of incest
pottery barn
curtains
surgical help for depression
oakland raiders comforter set
can you adopt after a suicide attempt
who is not allowed to adopt
i hate men
medication to enhance female desire
jobs in denver colorado
teaching positions in denver colorado
how long will the swelling last after my tummy tuck
divorce laws in ohio
free remote keyloggers

And while the damage is done by the breach, the dataset is on the web available for download.  No, I'm not going to tell you where.  I found it after one query in a major online search service through a link on the first page of results.  Sad. 

The story is here.
