Facebook app developer sued in class action

Rockyou, a developer of widgets for Facebook and MySpace that supposedly improve the users experience has been sued in San Francisco Federal Court for keeping personally identifiable information on 32 million customers in unencrypted plain text files making it extremely easy for hackers.

I hope for the sake these 32 million customers that Rockyou has since encrypted these files or the publicity around this lawsuit could set the hackers hacking!
