Rogers cable privacy glitch

Noticed an article in todays London Free Press about a privacy probem with Rogers cable that the privacy commissioner is looking into. Seems that if one knew someone else's name, phone #, and postal code, you could go on to the Rogers site and find out what cable services and channels that person subscribed to.

Rogers was quoted as saying Friday that : "...we have asked our website team to shut down this feature." I trust they were referring to the ability to look up ones own services as a "feature" and not the ability to look up other's.

Never ceases to amaze how entities that claim to have, and believe they have, privacy under control, end up with such blatant holes.
