California and Texas. More than 12,000 Z-Car enthusiasts have had their names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and other contact information exposed online. An mlinks.net user, "~aktar" placed a backed-up copy of a SQL database of Internet Z-Car Club Members, which was picked up by search engines. The database also includes personal comments, including dates of birth and car information, despite the fact that many of the members had indicated that they wanted their contact information hidden.
The identity of "~aktar" is not known, but his website contains a picture of a red '72 Datsun 240Z, with a California license plate. The website also contained a few spoof E-bay sign-in screens, which could have been used for phishing.
[UPDATE: December 20, 2008] A person who identified himself as the current owner of the 1972 Datsun 240Z contacted the Liberty Coalition, to assure us that he was not affiliated with the breach. He purchased the car in late 2007. We're just impressed that the car is still running.
