Kidney Times hack reveals users’ e-mail addresses and phone numbers

Via Cyber War News, another hack – this one of the Kidney Times user database with 952 email addresses and phone numbers dumped.

Lee J of Cyber War News comments on the breach:

Well, this would have to be one of the worst sites you could possible target, regardless. Hackers need to stay away from websites adn community’s that actually help people and give a good service or serve for a good reason.

Are we back to hacking just to show how insecure most sites are? I’m not sure what the point of this particular hack was and there’s no accompanying explanation.

Update: This entry was prepared a few days ago but I just got around to posting it.  I now see that the data dump has been removed and that Cyber War News appears to have disappeared.  I’m not sure what’s going on, but I had verified that there were 952 e-mail addresses and phone numbers before creating this entry.
