Pictures leeched from Private MySpace Profiles now available on BitTorrent!

Rough!

"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."

I didn't find anything wrong with the lack of a torrent link. I think he was trying more to inform than to support the download of the hacked data.

Re: Pictures leeched from Private MySpace Profiles now available on BitTorrent!

Downloading private data that was retrieved by exploiting a vulnerability doesn't sound all that ethical. Unless of course theres nekked pics involved, in which case its open season. I mean, how do people expect me to be motivated to stalk hot chicks if I can't get hacked nekked pics of them?  ???

Oh the ethical woes...

Re: Pictures leeched from Private MySpace Profiles now available on BitTorrent!

a true dilemma indeed

and cringe is right, a quick google search of the phrase + torrent will take you right to the link and a couple of sample links if you dont want to download the whole thing

Wow... a half million pictures of airhead teenage girls doing stupid poses in PhotoBooth from the Apple Stores.  Fun.

(Oh yeah, I work part time at an Apple store.  My comment probably isn't too off the mark.)
