Re: Luhn Check to Retrieve card details
That wouldn't really work in reality. If you had the first 6 and last 4 digits and then filled out the middle six with all possible combinations you'd create 1 million possibilities, with 100,000 passing the luhn/mod10 check. You've got no idea which ones are valid until you try to authorise them with an acquiring bank. You could generate all possible 10^16 credit card combinations and do the same, but you'd never get any authorised against an acquirer for a transaction with no further authentication data (CVV/Expiry/Name/Address, etc).
