- I'm just wondering: which already existing method you suggest to identify sb?Aug 7, 2012
- Perhaps those 4 digits could have been exposed some other way. But they weren't; they were exposed because of a major flaw in Amazon's procedures. Yes, Apple is at fault here, but there's blame to go around. It's not helpful or accurate to just say it was all Apple's fault, while ignoring the other factors involved in the hack. Ok?Aug 7, 2012

- I think its great that Amazon has taken action, but until Apple changes its procedures we're all still in the same spot...
How many other sites also display the last 4 digits? Paypal does for sure...I can only guess many others aswell.Aug 7, 2012
