Another data breach revealed in Finland

The third large-scale data security breach in the space of a few days was revealed in Finland on Wednesday, with usernames, passwords and email addresses belonging to about 12,000 users of Netcar, a used car website, posted on the internet.

A person claiming responsibility for the breach said they had no links to Anonymous Finland, a group claiming to be behind the two previous breaches.

Earlier this month, tens of thousands of social security numbers, telehone numbers, addresses and passwords were posted on the web.

The hacker did not offer any explanation for the hack and data dump.   The first data dump and second appear to be related and may have been two dumps from the same original incident.
