So a creepy company with low if not debased ethics has been hacked and 100,000 unique driver / license plates captures have been dumped on the web.

Bad on that company for horrible security. But what is the damage. Every time you hit the street anyone can see your license plate and face. If their data included registration info I could see that as a huge issue.

The disclosed data includes plate, face, time and location.

There are eyes in the sky 24/7. Not many places above ground for you to remain unseen. There are lots of interesting images captured by google mapping cars.

Back in the mid 70's it was great sport to generate a camera flash with my duece and half in Germany. The camera's were set up for cars, not trucks.

Which anyone in the area can see anyway. So no sensitive data was leaked.

A large if not the greater proportion are at CBP entry points on the Mexican border. I assumed that any data gathered at a point of entry (CBP inspection point) into or exiting the USA was not public record. Thank you for correcting me.

I'm really getting sick of the lack of privacy and loss of personal data that can literally ruin out lives. Something needs to be done across the board, but I doubt we'll ever see it..
