Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
A security hole in the popular MySpace social networking site allowed users to view entries marked "private", a crucial protection for users aged under 16, according to weekend reports. Though the site is said to have fixed the problem, it was said by news reports to have been active for months. Nobody at MySpace was immediately available for comment.

The real story would be that a MySpace profile set to private (you can only do this if you claim to be under 16) can be cracked. The article says this happened but then ruins it with that stupid quote.
It looks like someone from an "Iternational Law Firm" doesn't really know MySpace or HTML - even if the underlying story is true.

Just proves that WebmasterWorld policy on not linking to blogs is correct. Up until today I respected The Register.
