AOL customers: buyer beware

Many of the attacks described are social engineering attacks and not computer security holes. I can't believe the mumbling attacks--hilarious! Social engineering attacks are very hard to defend against, especially with huge callcenters like AOL must have.

AOL customers beware your privacy. AOL not only makes it easy to get on the Internet, they make it easy for others to get on the Internet as you too!

"Using a combination of trade tricks and clever programming, hackers have thoroughly compromised security at America Online, potentially exposing the personal information of AOL's 35 million users. "
