No, not justifiably so.

Yes, identity theft is awful, but there's no connection between disclosure of email addresses and identity theft. The most liberal states and courts in the nation will hot hold email addresses as private information. No plaintiffs attorney has found a single plaintiff who has suffered actual damages from the loss of an email address.

Anybody who complains about their email address being lost is just making unnecessary noise.

And since I've somewhat derailed, here's to get us back on track: new whiskey LHS.

By the way, your scenario is the same hypothetical fact pattern that has been used in a number of email breach lawsuits and shot down every time because plaitiff attorneys haven't been able to find a single person who's had actual damages arising out of an email breach.

My hypothetical situation is shit that happens every day. It's called social engineering now, not hacking. You have someones email address you can do nasty things. Earlier this year my xbox live account was drained of its points and $40 was on my credit card under Fifa pack. I was confused and went on line and low and behold a ton of people around the globe had the same thing happen to them.

The dude had people's email addresses and names, so he called microsoft support and was able to get into thousands of xbox live accounts with this. He didn't hack anything, it was all through finding loopholes.

ElDave, even if it is a stretch, I would still rather err on the side of caution.

Yea, I'm not saying Alden DC should be tarred and feathered. But I'm not necessarily happy that it happened.

Anyways, here's a contribution to the thread.

My Context Roy boots, favorite things for casual Friday.

How long have you had those boots and how well do you like them? I've been going back and forth with getting in on the current pre-order Context has going for them. Yours look great by the way.

Thanks! I have only had them for a few months. They were purchased second hand on here and he wore them "about 15 times". I love them, can't decide if I like these or my Cap Toe Boots #8 better. They both serve a purpose, but i think i like the roy boot slightly more because it's a bit more casual. I really like the crepe sole, reminds me of desert boots which have been one of my favorite boots for awhile. I wear the Roy Boot with a lot of different jeans too, from a 7.5" leg opening up to an 8.5" leg opening and they all look great.

I've been thinking about getting on the Chamois pre-order..

FYI your last line is pure speculation and has not been proven. In fact, it's hugely unlikely.

There were known issues with the XBox.com website. With any privacy breach, it tends to be very easy to track activity - e.g. these 100 people had suspicious credit card activity and they all ate at ABC restaurant in this two week period. If the XboxLive issue was caused by the wrongful disclosure of an email list, that email list would have been found by now.

Are these Barrie or TB?

Not for me, but I really like these. Very unusual combination of details.

My point was that the hackers engineered a way to get all this information just through emails
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The Windows Live IDs come from playing Xbox 360 games online. Gather Gamertags and Google search them in the hope you'll find related email addresses. Try these as Windows Live IDs and the Xbox.com website will let you know if they're valid - "the email address or password is incorrect" - or not - "That Windows Live ID doesn't exist."

Using these methods you can apparently brute force your way into a near-limitless supply of Xbox Live accounts and use their saved banking details to buy Microsoft Points
