KCOM-owned Eclipse FAILS to cover up the password 'password'

Mark Barton

Emailed Account Information

Another big security failing I get all the time is account information being sent to me which is obviously for another person - somebody entering there email address wrong when they sign up for a service.

Recently had O2, Vodafone, Charter etc. all send me logins, passwords, bank account information - you name it all because there sign up process doesn't first verify the email address.

I hate to break it to them but entering your email twice is not the same as verifying it.

Shame about the GPS

A lot of people, including me, are having serious problems with the GPS and until Samsung release an update I wouldn't bother.
