    Never heard of Yahoo Voices, I can't understand why Yahoo have this information in unencrytped files, the amount of money they make and they still leave things in the open like that.

    Playstation got hacked last year, again, loads on unencrypted details, then they said they were going to upgrade their security, errr, with all your billions, why not do that BEFORE you get hacked, big companies like these piss me off.

    You're right. These companies just don't learn do they? This is becoming a weekly occurrence!

    I must admit I'd never heard of Yahoo Voices either. A quick search shows over 5000 .co.uk addresses though, and many people have non geospecific emails like gmail, so a fair few brits are on the list.

    Apparently there have been issues at formspring too and everyone with an account there had to update their password. Crazy times.
