After what has come to light with their use of laughable passwords and other things, I'm fairly certain that I will require someone with a mop and bucket to clean up now that my head has well and truly exploded.

In that trove of data was laid bare the darker side of things. Selling to countries with horrid records of human rights abuses all the way through to airline loyalty card updates. It was horribly visceral. I had no sympathy for the company but, I felt the pain of having everything laid bare.
