Default Conservative Party donor list compromised [Star]

Looks like that hash brown breakfast hack was more serious than first admitted:
Hackers access Conservative donor list - thestar.com

OTTAWAŚComputer hackers infiltrated the federal Conservative Party website and accessed information about people who donated online, a spokesman has confirmed.
This is apparently the same or related to, the incident yesterday (for those that don't know, the Conservative Party website was hacked, and a false report posted on there saying the PM was rushed to hospital after choking on a hash brown). The Conservatives reported yesterday that donor lists were not compromised, but this is obviously not the case.

That actually isn't good at all considering people who donated online aren't the massive corporations some may think.
