Thanks for sharing, yah hackers are breaching more and more each year. Even banks get hit , but you'll never hear about it on the local news or news papers.

Banks lose millions some times, but they have no choice to eat the loss. The last thing that I heard about was Target stores & those customers that who were using the Chase credit cards got their personal info breached.

I guess the biggest would be the verizon/AT&T info leak
(In terms of size)
ya that was a good one because verizon leak also revealed how NSA & FBI lie -

"The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April. The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries." - NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily | World news | The Guardian

Leaks reveal the truth in small slices. In 2006, a technician at an AT&T switching center in San Francisco followed some fiber optic splices straight into an NSA wiretapping program parked on the backbones of the internet. Now someone with access to a single Patriot Act order served on Verizon Business Solutions leaked it to the Guardian, so today’s news is that the FBI and the NSA are engaged in wholesale spying on Verizon customers. But the whole pie is certainly bigger than that. - Also Revealed by Verizon Leak: How the NSA and FBI Lie With Numbers | Threat Level | Wired.com
