Groupon hole exposes customer data
A Groupon customer has reported an apparent security hole to CNet in which the credit card information of another customer was exposed.
When Stephen Pipino logged into the Web site to make a purchase, he saw someone else’s credit card information and address displayed in his account, along with his own credit card data. The information belonged to someone with his same first and last name. Pipino verified that the address matched a business address for the other Pipino and has contacted him to let him know about the problem.
