+ - Carbonite privacy breach leads to spam->

Submitted by

richi writes "It looks like Carbonite, Inc. has been giving out customers' personal information. The company's admitted giving customer email address to a third party, in direct contravention of its privacy policy.

Lest we forget, this is the same online backup company that lost the backups of thousands of its customers, while denying any data were lost, despite reports from customers who said they had (ahem) lost data. It's also the company whose VP of marketing was caught red-handed astroturfing on Amazon, along with other Carbonite employees. When the news broke, the company denied it had sanctioned the phony reviews.

So I guess this is Strike Three, right?"
