Vulnerable Texas Transportation Site 'TxTag' leaves 1.2 Million Credit Cards at Risk

 MILLION CREDIT CARD ARE AT RISK


Security researcher, David Longenecker claimed a serious flaw at TxTag website that exposes the active Credit Card Details and Personal Information of 1.2 Million Drivers including active TxTags (vehicle stickers with microchips, which are scanned by electronic readers on toll roads), Names, phone numbers, full residence addresses, email addresses, along with their complete Credit card numbers and Expiration date.


According to David, the account names could be easily predictable by anyone, which is typically an 8-digit number that begins with the number 2 and protected by only a 4-digit PIN Number, that could be itself another easy x-factor to abuse.

Well, I'm in this catagory...anyone that works in Dallas or Houston has to live by the toll roads and auto charge cards. Hopefully they will wake up and resolve this.
