I’m not sure of the veracity of this, exactly. What you’ll see is a video of what appears to be a communication from zFire Xue to someone else about recording passwords that were incorrectly typed into something (what, exactly? Something related to RedZone? Edit: The RedZone Web-site apparently, so it would be the passwords of RedZone customers, I guess) on the basis that some of those incorrect entries are actually also a person’s Second Life password (non exactly unlikely). Also about sharing that information, along with the geographical location of users.

Watch the video (dated August 2010).
