New Security Vulnerability: Clueless Users
I can't make heads or tails of this story:
A security loophole at a bank allowed easy access to sensitive credit card information, the BBC has found.
The Morgan Stanley website allowed users to access account details after entering just the first digit of a credit card number.
The shortcut would only work if the account holder had set up the computer to automatically save passwords.
It seems to me that if you set up your computer to automatically save passwords and autofill them onto webpages, you shouldn't be surprised when your computer does exactly that.
