Anybody else here heard about this? Basically almost their entire 15 year customer history, associated private info and card info has been sold off for nefarious purposes.

I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.

found out that the seller was reported to the RCMP and they're investing. still, it seems like a lot of data has already been sold.

Cool. Not like I bought countless computer parts / accessories from them over the past 10 years or so....

Maybe Linus might post up a video in YouTube about this.

Thankfully all my data on there is with old credit cards.  That is a brutal oversight.  I guess when things started going tits up they just all headed out the door.

Heh, any card I would have used with them is long expired, but there are still my personal details in the wind somewhere.

You guys actually leave CC info on sites?

You think not saving that info at the time of purchase makes a difference?

If I'm not mistaken, yes.

It wont be in a large user.dat file but a temp file on a server hdd most likely.

Do you use any phone app's for web banking?
