Bankrupt RadioShack to Auction Off Millions of Customer Records

I read this content from a couple of sources over the last two days and continue to be disturbed each time I see it come up on my feeds.  I understand the profitability surrounding the data RadioShack is auctioning off, but it beyond unethical for them to go down this path given the privacy agreement that led to the collection of the data to begin with.  This is yet another example of the nature of data once provided to 3rd parties.  Be aware and prepared.  That audio cable you purchased 12 years ago for your home stereo may lead to your addition to several less than savory email lists.
