Well he can't be expected to live up to the requirements (as said in the ORDER) for the next 20 years when it was sold.

tasman1 you are here from 2012 so i dont stand in the position of saying anything , but i think a lil patience is what we all need, i'm too frustrated to see whats happening , but there might be development goin on in the background, and they decided not to shut the page down instead keep it live.

Yea, Jim was lucky to find a sucker, I mean a company to buy him out with that 20 year sentence
with the Gov't breathing down his neck.

With this being the same site, the new company will have to apply the security features.

I know what was stolen.

In regards to the add-on, nope, I don't think it had anything to do with that.
There may have been some kind of back door there but I don't believe that
was the issue. The issue was, the site was not secure so obviously it wasn't
difficult for a hack to happen.

What I saw is USA. The hacker was only interested in grabbing
the USA info.

Well technically it is NOT the same site and not the same company, not the same owner, so they are not bound to any order. Whatever it is people are naive to believe that their data online is safe and secure, but that's for another debate :D

I do not believe that the sale of CS has anything to do with this, acquisition deals don,t happen overnight. It was obvious that one day he would sell, this was not his main earner at all and it is no secret, Jim made the news, his other businesses are mentioned, the $$$, no secrets, CS was like a hobby or side thing if you like, so it was only a matter of time he was going to let CS go if a good offer comes his way. in 2016 CS made world news and CS was portrayed in a very negative way, he could have closed the company or sell it - yet he continued to operate for 3 solid years.

The information they stole is more than USA, I can confirm that my information were among the list, but I do not care, my date of birth is a few digits off for the year :lol: I remember there was a pastebin posted online which was a SAMPLER of the alleged stolen information - I did the smart thing in the first place to never use common passwords on different sites - My e-mail has a password, this site a different password, etc....

From what I read in an article, the alleged hacker discovered a vulnerability through the extension and from that information could access the information, if my memory serves they said over 6 million members information, among 500,000 US members But this is nothing, these kinds of hacks are common now, the latest one is Capital One, 100 million accounts in the US, and 6 million accounts in Canada, same issue, info stored in clear text (the user information at least, not the CC / passwords)

Whatever it is it's up to people to be smart and ensure their security - and if a breach occurs to act quickly to avoid damage. Despite all the chaos, CS did survive through 2016-2019. ClixSense has lasted 12 solid years, during that time countless sites have opened and closed, it was only a matter of time before he sold - you don't become too wealthy in the industry, compared to his other business so it only makes SENSE :lol:
