    Laptop sold on ebay includes credit card application, financial data, and banking data of over 1m people.

    The real question is, how much did it sell for on eBay? The intimate details of 1 million people, for a few hundred bucks. What a deal!

    *sigh*, I'm not shocked at all by this sadly. Hackers have it easy these days, gross negligence like this gives them everything they want without having to resort to taking over PCs and getting past security defenses.
