Leaky Web Sites

Here is an article that shows how easy it is to build profiles of people using web sites to determine whether they have visited or not. By typing in your e-mail address and an incorrect password, many sites will volunteer the fact that you are a subscriber/member/customer.

I am sure there are companies or at least people that will use this technique to build profiles of people. It is currently a time consuming process that can be automated, making it easy to determine the likes, dislikes, political position, favorite pastimes, news sites and more via just a bit of snooping.
