    Please update your post one more time to purge the secret perlmonks cache

    FWIW/AFAIK, you're supposed to treat SSN about the same as CCN, and you should notify the people whose SSN's you exposed so they can monitor teir credit for identity theft

      I updated it 5 times...taking out all the #s too.

        Hmm, it doesn't seem to have worked -- the workings of the cache are mysterious -- please contact Corion he should be able to intervene, a  /msg Corion lots of nodes in [id://1004082] contain sensitive info , can you purge them from your cache? Thanks

      again, there are no socials or CCN's in the original file.

        Aww, and I really wanted a new credit card :p

    You're posting (what could be) other peoples personaly data on the internet (good luck getting that out of search engine caches), is that a better idea than spending a few minutes effort? Why do you think we need this to be real data? If you were having problems with a database script would you provide valid login credentails? Why do you think anyone would need so much data in order to help with your code? Hopefully you're starting to get the point.

    The sensible thing would have been to craft a fake file using data you'd made up, only a few records long. Posting it formatted correctly helps. Essentially making it easier for people to help you.

    Update: Prior to nuking, the post this was in reply to said:

    "well what can I do...scrub the whole file???"

    Please mark significant updates, rather than replace content, so replies still have context.

    Yes--quickly remove the above, and then scrub all that you want to post here as a sample to work on.

      agree. excuse my stupidity and lazyness. i was wrong and the file is now scrubbed.
