Ctrip confirms credit-card security flaw

  • A website has exposed a potential security flaw within Ctrip's (CTRP -1.6%) storage of customer credit-card data, one that could've resulted in the data being exposed to hackers. Ctrip says it has "conducted a thorough internal check and removed the cause of the potential security concern." (PR)
  • Ctrip thinks the website may have downloaded the credit-card info of 93 customers to prove its point. The company has "proactively reached out to all 93 customers to help them minimize potential risks," and doesn't believe any customer "has suffered financial loss or other damage due to the incident."

    It's a good thing I can only pay by cash; no domestic credit card.
