Our right to privacy is eroding in the information age, well all know that. There's not even an expectation of privacy when you bring your computer into for repair. I mean how can you have high expectations or any realistic expectations for that matter when you're getting your computer fixed but someone who is likely a young kid barely making over the minimum wage? It's a harsh fact not too many people like but that's the way it is. You have to be proactive with your privacy nowadays and if you don't want to take those proactive measures(installing antivirus, asking about privacy policies, etc) don't expect to have any.

Still, by whatever means the discovery came doesn't change the fact what this guy did is WRONG and he needs some serious help.

In ending, as the good book says, "You reap what you sow"
