Consumer Fraud Suit Filed Against Sears

The New York Times (via Reuters) reports that a new consumer fraud suit has been filed against Sears in Illinois state court.  The suit alleges that the lack of privacy protections on Sear's "managemyhome.com" site violate the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act.   According to the complaint, the site allows users to view purchase histories of Sears's customers.  Sears turned off that feature on Friday after the suit was filed.  The complaint seeks class action status. 

Brian Krebs at the WaPo's Security Fix Blog has a copy of the complaint.
