Monster Worldwide, the owner of employment search site Monster.com, warned job seekers late Wednesday that the company had discovered and shut down a rogue database that contained personal information culled from résumés posted on the site.

As reported by SecurityFocus, online fraudsters have used the database to craft personalized e-mails that purport to be a work-at-home job, but in reality are part of a scheme to steal funds from a bank account. The information found on the server included names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses, the company said.
