Three users of AOL have filed a case against AOL, for releasing personal queries of  its users. The data had vital personal information like name, address, social security numbers typed in the search box by the users.  The users of the AOL feel that AOL cannot disclose their personnel data without their consent. Speaking in  defense of AOL, their spokesman Andrew Weinstein said “This was a screw up, and we're angry and upset about it. It was an innocent-enough attempt to reach out to the academic community with new research tools, but it was obviously not appropriately vetted, and if it had been, it would have.”
