Get over it!
I found private e-mails on the web because one part-time employees had his company mail forwarded to his web based university e-mail account. Which - of course - got spidered by search engines. And how many people forward e-mail without even asking the originator… Or those people including 500 e-mail address in the To: or CC: just to make sure that everyone of those can then start spamming you !
Ever searched for your phone number using a search engine? Or credit card numbers? You will be surprised about the amount of information you can find!
So - what does it mean?
Well, be very careful about what you write and which webpages you go.
A simple block in from any to any and block out from any to any in your firewall rules will go a long way.
And in case of e-mail - just make sure that you do not send it out in the first place.
