5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Mixing Microsoft's technology brawn with Pro-Wrestling's brains was a disaster waiting to happen, and so it has turned out to be. A poorly-configured NT server run by the US World Wrestling Federation is inadvertently providing transaction records for thousands of customers of the site.

It doesn't publish their credit card numbers, but it does detail almost everything else, including tracking information.

So Anna Marie Ricci, of State Island New York, your 'The Rock - Just Bring It!' T-shirt (L) and 'Rock "Shut Up Juice" Koozie' freebie are on their way. The server also provides details of cancelled orders, such as this one from Captain Billy of Jefferson, South Dakota.

In fact, if you want to peruse the underbelly of America's forgotten angry people, just type in a seven figure code where the Order ID should go in the URL above.

Just don't blame us for spoiling your Christmas surprise.

Many thanks to the secretive Kuro5hin Cabal - which of course, doesn't exist - for bring this story to our attention. ®
