Citing dissatisfaction with Lateline, it appears that Anonymous has breached security at the ABC web site, revealing quite a bit of sensitive user information. Time once more to change your passwords!


It's not surprising that Google decided
to make a submission to the ACCC over eBay's controversial plan to
make PayPal the sole payment method
available on the site. It's not
surprising that Google asked that its name was kept off the public
version of its submission. And sadly, it's not surprising that -- as
a great story at AuctionBytes reveals -- an
Australian eBay user, David Bromage, managed to deduce Google's
involvement by looking at metadata attached to the PDF file. But is
it possible to avoid those kinds of problems?


Send that cutie who lives two apartments down the hall an anonymous message with new webapp HadToSay.com. Here's how it works: you register for a free account at HadToSay, write your message, and send the message ID and PIN to the recipient via "masked" email or by printing out a card. (See the video for the card bit; it's pretty darn cute.) Your recipient goes to HadToSay.com, enters their message ID and PIN, and they retrieve your message and optionally post a response. You never enter your or your recipient's names, which is a good thing, because all messages are public and browseable. Looks like a fun way to send your special someone a little something to make them smile. As with all anonymous messaging tools, this could be used for good or evil—don't be evil. HadToSay.com
