Update from last week...potential security breach areas here and now a lawsuit has been filed as a result of a blogger's inquiry, one good reason to take privacy and security issues seriously, especially in health care...BD 

The suit, filed last Friday in Circuit Court in Cook County, Illinois, states that the retailer's managemyhome.com site allows users to view purchase histories of Sears customers by entering public information such as a name or street address, in violation of a state Consumer Fraud Act that forbids "unfair or deceptive" practices.  The complaint, which seeks class-action status and millions in damages, said the data available at the Manage My Home site could be used to commit fraud and obtain even more sensitive customer data such as social security numbers.
