    Everything is getting hacked lately. Recently Yahoo! Mail and some other
    thing, can't remember what, was hacked. And of course awhile back LinkedIn
    was hacked. If only the hackers would user their powers for good instead
    of evil. Someone blogged about Pinterest's sneaky way of spamming your FB
    followers. I'll try to find that link. It's not a hack, it's - as you
    called it - poor design/executed of an otherwise fascinating app.

    Here's that article:

    Subject: [WD&D] Watch Out On Pinterest

    Pinterest was a good idea, but it was rather poorly executed. My account
    was hacked and I was "Liking" all sorts of scams. These in turn showed up
    on my Facebook account.

    The worst thing about the Pinterest design is that it resized everything I
    pinned without maintaining any aspect ratio what-so-ever.

    It's a great idea that was executed rather poorly.

    I've changed my password there and on Facebook. I just love updating
    passwords, you have to change them at the site, in the browser, and in your
    password vault. It takes way too much time. And you are never really
    assured that you won't be hacked again, as they got you somehow.

    I'm actually seeing some pretty "too good to be true" hacker tools for
    getting passwords on Facebook for any username. I wouldn't dare download
    anything like that, it most assuredly contains a virus, but it really
    couldn't be that easy, or is it?
