AOL Compromises User Data Integrity Providing Search Terms!

Well if you’re one of 500,000 randomly selected users on AOL, you may be surprised to know that they’ve released your search terms. Yes, every search term that you have typed in over a period of time is now available to be downloaded over the Internet.

Considering how personal some searches can be I can only attest that this is quite shocking, it would not take a rocket scientist very long at all to figure out who was conducting the searches. Are you and AOL user and how do you feel about this? []
