Stealing AOL Passwords

from the easy-as-ever dept

One of AOL's claims to fame (yeah, I've seen the commercials) is that it's so easy to use. So, either in making it so easy to use they left wide up security holes, or they just sign up gullible customers. Or a combination of both. Either way, people haven't had much of a problem stealing AOL user's usernames and passwords. AOL's response so far? Telling people to be more careful. Very easy.
