    When you sit an underpaid, usually low-skilled person whose job is constantly threatened with outsourcing, down at a desk and give him/her access to a database filled to the brim with thousands or more customer's personal information, this is bound to happen (if this was a customer service rep). I worked in that field when I was 18, and I sat down in the middle of a goldmine every day.

    The IT guys were basically high-paid versions of the Three Stooges, the supervisors and head bosses were at "lunch meetings" sometimes twice a day. I could have done some catastrophic damage, and a few people actually DID do some damage to some very rude customers. And no one was watching the helm and could prove a thing.

    Ronjor,

    Is there any info about this on the web or did it come to you through the grapevine? I'm always interested to hear about the latest corporate data breaches. Thanks.
