The Denver Police Dept. reports that LimeWire's file-sharing program was exploited to access personal and financial information from approximately 75 different individual and business account names from all over the country. The information, which included tax records, bank account information, online bill paying records and other material, appears to have been stolen directly from computers that were using LimeWire's filesharing software program.
