    Although it is disappointing that trip advisor's security has been found lacking, it is only fair to congratulate them on being a lot more honest about this than many other companies. I can tell from the e-mail address where every spammer got my e-mail address, and a string of well-known companies seem to have had a security breach. This is the first one ever to acknowledge it!
