If you want me to check for your name in the database, I will try to do so -- as long as I don't get too many requests.

JOURNALISM: Gannett Paper Exposes Gun Owners, Hides Hacks. "To be blunt, we have no idea why the Journal News has not notified you. . . . They have left you in jeopardy for over two months."

Has anyone in the NY area looked up their names on the database? How do you feel about the theft of your personal information - and more importantly, the newspaper's failure to contact you?

Thanks Noreen. 

While Gannett may have the power to suppress the media, I am a little surprised some other news source didn't broadcast.  Or maybe they have a mutual understanding that one won't report the other. 

I'm wondering what the law says about disclosure on this issue, since this is not a financial institution. 

When I register to comment on a news site, sometimes I use a mock address such as 111 Street St. City, CA USA to prevent junk mail and such. Though rarely I do that because if it is a heated issue, I doubt anyone reads all 300 prior comments, before making a comment of their own.

The only possible explanation I can come up with is that the newspaper was caught without a plan in place to deal with such a case and ignored it hoping it would pass unnoticed. Inaction usually is this is a result of lacking direction. Not too good in this case.

No Seth - that is not it. The hackers exposed login info for the papers website. The paper published the names of gun permit owners.

@ Noreen, if I'm understanding things correctly, I think a possible reason why the Gannett paper didn't notify anyone, if this did occur, was the paper had already broadcast the information to the world, that the hackers did.  Though one did it legally and the other didn't.

You have to wonder why Economic Guardian isn't going to authorities, then, rather than to the "victims." Something doesn't smell right about this whole thing!

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
