AOL Sued Over Data Breach
The AOL semi-accidental data release has finally resulted in a lawsuit against the company by aggrieved AOL users. The suit was filed in federal court in Oakland over breach of privacy. Attorneys have three plaintiffs named and are seeking class action status.
AOL did remove the data from the web once it realized its mistake. Aside from the fact that AOL released the data, the suit faults AOL for not trying to stop mirror sites from distributing copies of the data.
