Hello,

  I thought the list might be interested to know that the Educause
conference registration pages leak your personal information to anyone
curious.  If you go to any conference registration page, for instance:

http://net.educause.edu/Registration/15931

and click the "Register someone else online using our secure server"
link you can enter a target e-mail address and click through the
registration process to not only reveal their full contact information,
but also their emergency contact information!  I've emailed Educause
about this problem but thought the list would like to know so you can
provide pressure to get this problem fixed.
