Submission + - Man jailed after using LimeWire for ID theft (idg.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "A Seattle man has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for using the Limewire file-sharing service to lift personal information from computers across the U.S. The man, Frederick Wood, typed words like "tax return" and "account" into the Limewire search box. That allowed him to find and access computers on the Limewire network with shared folders that contained tax returns and bank account information."
