Three Depart AOL Over Search Data Leak


I’m glad to see AOL considers the accidental release of user’s search data to be unacceptable. The company has fired the researcher responsible and his supervisor, according to CNET.

The culling didn’t stop there, either…

CTO Maureen Govern “has decided to leave AOL effective immediately,” AOL Chief Executive Jon Miller wrote in an e-mail to employees dated Monday.

Seems like an appropriate response to me. Anyone think AOL should do more?
