Privacy concerns and spam, bit Internet concerns. Network Solutions blows it on both fronts:

    “A few thousand” Network Solutions customers received e-mail messages that contained more than 85,000 e-mail addresses of other Network Solutions customers, said spokesman Patrick Burns of VeriSign Inc., the parent company of Network Solutions.

    “We made a mistake, and we’ll apologize to our customers,” Burns said.

    ….The list was sent to Network Solutions customers who purchased “.org” addresses through the company; it included customers whose addresses begin with the letters R through Z. Network Solutions had intended to send the recipients a message about how a recent transition in .org management would affect their accounts.

    ….All domain-name contact information is available through the “Whois” databases maintained by the Internet’s various address sellers. Internet users can enter a domain name at one of the Web sites that feature the databases and find the contact information for the owner of the address.
