On TDA Data Loss

Now, if this isn't screwed up, I dunno what is: "E-mails obtained by Network World show that Ameritrade received explicit and repeated warnings from an IT security expert starting Jan. 9, 2006 that its customer data had apparently been compromised, placing the start of the breach much earlier than previously reported and likely pushing it into 2005."

Good bye, TJX breach. We hardly knew you - you are now officially #2 (painful, ain't it? :-)) on the infamy scale. Welcome, TDA! Congrats!
