Eran Kahana, a cybersecurity and intellectual property attorney at Maslon, is interviewed in an August 25, 2017, Star Tribune article titled, "You've got someone else's mail: Digital doppelgangers find in-box surprises." The article discusses the cyber security problem of people "who have common names or use common email addresses" and receive sensitive emails intended for others.
The article states that, "Everything from taxes to heartfelt love confessions is being sent into the Internet ether, only to land in the in-boxes of the wrong people," and highlights that email is not secure. Eran explains, "Though far faster and more convenient than addressing a paper envelope, e-mail should be treated with the same reverence. You would think there would be a lot more care taken before you hit 'send.'"
