Honestly, it's this sort of thing that makes me think the WikiLeaks thing is way too overblown. I do think he ought to be pressured not to provide cover to the kinds of criminals who steal information for fun and profit, but how to do that legally would be very tricky. At the same time, I find the pundits who immediately began howling for Assange's assassination quite contemptible.

I just hope no one gets hold of my personal banking information -- again. I'm still going through stuff with them over someone hacking my account now. I'm currently working to close an account I've had for the last 8 years and really my first ever bank account because some jack-off wanted to steal my account number and use it for shipping costs with UPS and FedEx...

Explosive material that could potentially expose massive fraud (not that most people didn't suspect that already), leading to lawsuits, and potentially a chain reaction where some of the MBS' could be rolled back or modified.
