Someone’s Brilliant Idea!

If you haven’t heard there are some brilliant people out there. Blippy users’ credit card numbers were exposed and all over Google. If you might not believe me but here it is.

Who in a right state of mind sits behind a computer and says to him self “I believe I will give you my credit card info, no problem, what’s the worst it can happen.”  Well the worst has happened and its out there for everyone to see.

This is what Blippy had to say:

“Blippy is very concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal data to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Services in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.”

Sharing your credit card and online purchases with friends on the web was not a good idea and I don’t think it will ever be no matter how secure they say it is, just because there is always that one person that is waiting to crack the code.
