Woot.com has sold these devices between October and December 2011. the old data that is stored on the tablets can be accessed by the new owners and these include photos, videos, documents, usernames and passwords of the social networking and e-mail accounts.
The company is suggesting that the old owners who have sold the tablets to change the passwords for their e-mail and social networking accounts. The owners who have reset their tablets to the factory settings before selling the device are in the safe zone.
