Big brother and Skynet had a bastard child and they're still trying to figure out what to name it.

It was a single company and it wasn't intentional but still basically inexcusable.

Wait until Mr. Gaywood finds out about the phone book.

Lee Gaywood, 31, of Chelsea Heights in Victoria

Heh, 31 years of LOL at his expense.

You have no privacy. Get over it.

Face it: we live in a post-privacy world. Get used to seeing that goofy face you make while taking a dump splashed all over YouTube.

Meh, the media outed gun owners, did you think the rest of you were safe from the same kind of treatment?

Data discovered included customer names, telephone numbers and in some cases home and business addresses.

So it was a directory, like the white pages of the old style phone book.  Unless there's CC #'s and or SS#'s I cant find the distilled Outrageium necessary to become cynical about this.

Shrug -  not news, not scary, couldn't find the necessary element to be outraged about.
Wait, did Alex Jones write this article?

Someone please cue the "Oh Noes" about this?  Too disinterested in phone books to do it my self
