mini me + poo

If I were a major multinational internet firm that had been hacked..

.. leading to a loss of customers' names, dates of birth, phone numbers, physical addresses, email addresses, and "encrypted" passwords, I would:

a) say something on the front page of the site; and

b) say something on the site's media centre press release page; and

c) say something on the site's announcements page; and

d) say something on the login page; and

e) say something on the landing page when someone does log in; and

f) say something in an email to every customer.

eBay has done none of those. It did tweet something though.
