Spammers Get 92 Million AOL Addresses

If there was ever a reason to stop using AOL’s service, this recent bit of news should be it. I feel sorry for anyone who is still using AOL (and consequently is stuck in the Stone Age of the internet, missing out on the greatest stuff.) Even my grandmother gets spam emails with porn in it, explicit words, and offensive images. Of course, if you don’t find girls getting freaky with horses offensive, you should stay on AOL.

“According to the criminal complaint, Jason Smathers of Harpers Ferry, W. Va., used his inside knowledge of AOL’s computer system to steal a list of 92 million AOL customer account “screen names,” and then sold them to Sean Dunaway, who is not an AOL employee.”

If you know of a Sean Dunaway, kick him for all of us out there who hates spammers.
