Sidekick Users Seeing Others' Data

T-Mobile must be having a blast with their Sidekick service lately. Just days after that whole Paris Hilton issue (which came a few months after a well publicized hacking of the service) they’ve continued to deal with a massive service outage. T-Mobile and Danger (the provider of the Sidekick service) are now claiming that service should finally be back tomorrow… but in the meantime, many users who can log in are claiming that they’re seeing other users’ data! In other words, why bother hacking into Paris Hilton’s Sidekick, when all you have to do is wait for T-Mobile and Danger to screw up, and the data might just come right to you?
