Have you ever hit the "send" button by mistake? It appears that someone at Lingo, a New Zealand voice over IP service provider, did it yesterday -- and released the billing email addresses of some 14,343 customers.
According to a blog by one of Lingo's customers, the VOIP service provider sent a message with all of the email addresses in the "to:" field. Perhaps the sender meant to use the blind courtesy copy (bcc) feature and missed.
The blogger even offers a copy of the email -- with the addresses thoughtfully obscured.
It's a shame Lingo couldn't have done the same.
