Astroglide - Second Only to Nature
'Sex will never be the same.'
One thing's certain: when you get data like the following in response to a HEAD request you can and should expect the worst.
Personal data - names, addresses, and products purchased - for 250,000 customers has been found in Google searches. Some of the customer records have been around since 2003. And even though Google and others alerted the company (Biofilm) some records still remain online.
The breach was discovered when a person who had ordered a free sample of Astroglide searched for his own name in Google and found the Astroglide record of his request.
Biofilm officials have not made a public statement or released an exact count of the number of customer records affected. Homeland Stupidity comment.
This is important because aside from the thousands of records remaining in Google's cache, a spreadsheet containing 4,529 records of people who ordered the company's Silken Secret vaginal moisturizer product remains on Astroglide's web site, available for download by anyone. Out of these records, 4,055 were identified as female, 472 identified as male, and two had no gender listed.
'There's no such thing as a free lubricant', comments Wired's Ryan Singel. And the Astroglide website seems to agree: 'sex will never be the same'.
