Online -everything- hacked, or so it seems.

Jun 19, 2011 - "... Sega Corp said on Sunday that information belonging to 1.3 million customers has been stolen from its database, the latest in a rash of global cyber attacks against video game companies. Names, birth dates, e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords of users of Sega Pass online network members had been compromised, Sega said in a statement, though payment data such as credit card numbers was safe. Sega Pass had been shut down... The attack against Sega, a division of Sega Sammy Holdings that makes game software such as Sonic the Hedgehog as well as slot machines, follows other recent significant breaches including Citigroup, which said over 360,000 accounts were hit in May, and the International Monetary Fund... surrounding the recent round of video game breaches paled compared to what PlayStation maker Sony Corp experienced following two high-profile attacks that surfaced in April. Those breaches led to the theft of account data for more than 100 million customers, making it the largest ever hacking of data outside the financial services industry..."

Don't criminals just need a name and birth date to open a credit card? They can fake the address. This sounds really bad. I never put my real birth date on web sites or forums. So, if the info is stolen, I am not liable for any charges from a credit card opened in my name.

Well it gives a good idea of the prob but so many breaches go unnoticed or unannounced. It's kinda spooky to think about how many places a user might have personal info incl cc/banking info stored.

I am not so sure that after you update or remove the data stored by various websites that it is actually gone either.

Many like to keep backups, logs, or change history that you cannot see.
