Minnesota Public Radio reporter Sasha Aslanian broke a story about alleged free and public access to confidential and personal data of Minnesota state employees through a Houston, Texas-based company, Lookout Services. As a consequence, there appears to be a threat of Computer Fraud and Abuse Act complaint against her (Minnpost Piece, here).

If Lookout Services wants to supplement the black eye of the original (apparently admitted) lapse, an action against the reporter is one option, I guess.
