Maybe not this particular site.
All this cloud based stuff is not secured.Even outfits like GOOGLE gets hacked on a daily basis. Companies do not always immediately disclose to their customers that they had a data breach until after the fact when it is usually too late.
This what went on and the writer describes how it takes place.
Very real threat because of an un-secure database on an email verification site.
last week I bought some parts on line.
This week I get a phone call from my bank that there was suspicious activity on a particular credit card.
Went to the bank and reviewed the records for the last week.
Someone was trying to purchase thousands of dollars of merchandise at a "Big Box" store in the south eastern U.S. using that credit card #.
Somehow the thief f'ed up and the purchase got flagged/rejected.
Needless to say the card got cancelled .
This is not the first time this has happened to me.
A few years ago I traced one that was run through a fake business that had a phone # of a restaurant in Missouri.
I get jerk off thieves calling me saying my social security number is going to be cancelled if i do not do blah blah blah immediately. LOL
Or they claim they are from the IRS or some other government entity.
Tragedy is some people fall for that crap and get their identities stolen /lives turned upside down and it takes them months if not years and legal fees to fix it.
As far as I am concerned the penalty for these cyber thieves should be death.Terminate with extreme prejudice.
If they want to appeal their penalty it's "yer losing yer birthday today asshole. Tough Shit ,NEXT CASE!".
The cyber thieves cost the economy 100s of millions if not billions of dollars a year.They ripoff everything from private citizens to big banks ,corporations and everything in between .Just the annual cost to catch them, prosecute them,then if convicted ,incarcerate them is enormous.
