Another public records security breach:
Now, it turns out, hackers have gotten in to Accurint and stolen private data. If this story is right, it's even scarier than the Choicepoint situation (which just involved someone getting a subscription under false premises). The Accurint database now belongs to LexisNexis, which bought parent company Seisint last fall. That's $775 million that Nexis would probably prefer to have right now, instead of the headache.....
