 Attrition.org Data Loss Archive and Database (DLDOS) should scare anyone

This post was originally published on Twitter as a Tweet on 3 March 2013:

Breaches of personal privacy and information loss are well documented and archived at Attrition.org Data Loss Archive and Database (DLDOS) at http://attrition.org/dataloss/. I mentioned this in a recent post, but it deserves its own.

http://attrition.org/dataloss/

This is what happens when politicians and regulators fail to take action.

Everyone is at risk. Russia and North Korea are taking no action to stop hacking since they are two of the top countries where is this occurring.
