Downloading Other People's Tax Returns on the Internet

1040 Michelle Malkin has some very scary news for folks who prepare their own taxes on TurboTax, TaxCut, or other software who also share songs and movies on the Internet via person-to-person "P2P" programs like Kazaa or LimeWire:  if you are not careful about the folders on your computer you make available for file-swapping, your tax return ill be avaiable for the world to see.  Don't believe it?  Type in "Form 1040" on Kazaa or LimeWire and see what you get -- check out these three examples here (click on 1, 2, and 3).  (Thanks to the Tax Guru and Roth & Company for the tip.)
