The AOL search data leak involved the releasing of AOL user's search log information by the company itself in August of 2006. The release was intentional and intended for research purposes; however, the public release meant that the entire Internet could see the results rather than a select number of academics. AOL did not identify users in the report, but personally identifiable information was present in many of the queries. This allowed some users to be identified by their search queries, prominently a woman named Thelma Arnold.
