Defunct Site Reveals Credit Card Data

from the ooops dept

PCWorld has an article about an out of business web site that is revealing all the credit card info from all orders taken on the site. This is, obviously, pretty bad. The site’s main business was porn of some sort. The article doesn’t reveal what the site is, but says that going to it just gives the viewer the directory structure of the server, and a little surfing will get you to the full list of orders, including names, credit card numbers and expiration dates.
