    With the exception of the social network getting hacked (I don't afflict myself with Facebag, etc.), they're all massive bummers. But having lived through identity theft, I can say without hesitation that it's the worst mess. It took eight years to clean it up...and that was back in 1993-2001, when the Internet wasn't nearly as pervasive as it is now. Today, identity theft coupled with Internet abuse would be catastrophic.

  2. I'd just like to point out that secretly stolen passwords trump stolen identity, as your identity could be stolen at any moment.... same goes for hacking your social network (and didn't email trump social network in the first round?).

    So it really comes down to:
    What's worse?
    Personal information is unknowingly leaked
    Personal property is knowingly stolen

      That was my exact thoughts on it. Especially since you have online banking, online shopping, etc.

      A good hacker could easily steal your identity if they have access to all your online accounts.

    "Your passwords are stolen, allowing your online activity to be secretly monitored"

    Can't exactly see how that can happen unless I anger someone very big that can hack every site I use daily.

    "Your laptop is stolen"
    Very annoying, but hardly the end of the world as long as you got some safety and backups.
