Default Filesharing Admin Arrested for Selling User Database

Yet another reason why it isn't so smart to trust these people with your private information. Italian police have arrested the 49-old operator of a handful of file-sharing sites that were previously shut down. The man, known online under the pseudonym "Tex Willer", allegedly made over half a million euros profit from the sites. Besides copyright infringement, tax evasion, forgery and fraud, he is also accused of selling the email addresses of 300,000 users.
