A woman got quite a surprise when she looked in her recycle bin. Someone had dumped hundreds of files of people's personal information. The manila folders that were found contained personal information of AT&T cell phone customers, including credit card numbers, driver's licenses and Social Security numbers. It appears the information was collected by another company called Ferrell Communication, which was located in a strip mall. It's no longer there, and the phone number listed isn't valid.

Hackers gained access to the Site's database.  Staff and user emails and passwords, the site code and staff messages were made accessible to anyone.  The group claiming responsibility calls themselves Gnosis.  Gawker encouraged users to change their passwords after their information was exposed.  This may also mean changing passwords for other sites where users have similar screen names and passwords.  Gnosis claims they had access to the site for a long time and exposed Gawker's information "because of their outright arrogance."
