Scary

Check out this site.  Blogger 'Glen' is posting images and military information he finds through peer 2 peer networks.

The photos seem pretty innocent stuff - pretty much what you would expect to see from a bunch of bored soldiers stuck in the desert.

The other information is less innocent - personnel rosters, including name, address and phone numbers of marines, as well as other administrative information.

Glen says he is posting it to draw the military's attention to the problem, to avoid its use by terrorists.  I think it is a worthy goal, however I think a more realistic misuse of the information would be by anti-war protestors, who would love the personal phone numbers and pagers of a bunch of marines.
