This week I was surfing the web and came along a site, Spokeo.com, that has found almost all information you can think of for tons of people across the world. This web site just needs a name and you to choose one of the locations for the different matches it found and then it pulls up all the information it has on that name. But this has two major issues, a) if the site has found things like credit card or social security numbers someone could easily steal many peoples idenities and b) how were the creators able to find out the information in the first place. These are scary thougts that this information is so easily accessed and that someone or a group of people are posting all this information on the web for anyone to see.
