Worst security breach ever?

We'd heard a few rumours from sources in the security community that something "really bad" was going down, but it seems that the news is out at last.

Someone has leaked Santa's Naughty List to the Internet at large.
Arweena, a spokes-elf for Santa Claus, admitted a few hours ago that the database posted at WikiLeaks yesterday is indeed the comprehensive 2009 list of which kids have been naughty, and which were nice. The source of the leak is unclear. It may have come from a renegade reindeer, or it could be the work of a clever programmer in the Ukraine. Either way, it's a terrible black eye for Santa. Arweena promised that in the future, access to this database would be restricted on a “need to know” basis. And you know who that means!
So, are you on The List?
