More than half million private images are stolen from MySpace

yep, a script ran thru 44,000 profiles downloaded around 5 million of private images. The biggest security breach on any social networking website. From Wired:

A 17-gigabyte file purporting to contain more than half a million images lifted from private MySpace profiles has shown up on BitTorrent, potentially making it the biggest privacy breach yet on the top social networking site.

 

The creator of the file says he compiled the photos earlier this month using the MySpace security hole that Wired News reported on last week. That hole, still unacknowledged by the News Corporation-owned site, allowed voyeurs to peek inside the photo galleries of some MySpace users who had set their profiles to "private," despite MySpace's assurances that such images could only be seen by people on a user's friends' list.

 

If you are so curious to find out what are in THOSE pics, you may try to "waste" your bandwidth by visiting link of torrent  but geeks at SD say that it's useless since most of pictures of others people cat and one said that someone would like to write a script to upload them on HotorNOT
