I received this email from one of our active classmates. "During a bored moment playing around with my computer, I googled my name. My name along with several other classmates appeared on a link. When I clicked on it brought me directly to this website. From there I could click on to anyone's name and get all the personal information. No password needed. So, the world can access any classmate just by googling a name. I know in today's world "privacy" is almost non-existent... Just thought you would want to know."

Is there some way to protect against this?

It's not actually happening. This is a common misconception however. The Classmate doing the Google search is still logged into the site. That's all. For a full explanation of what's happening here please:
