Re: Is it OK to hold credit card numbers in cookies? Santander?

Well, if we talk about Banks...

Hypo Vereinsbank (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HypoVereinsbank) has
kind of a strange security style: The online banking website will
disable your login once you enter it 3 times wrong. Your login is your
BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER. To re-enable it you have to go into one of their
offices IN PERSON and identify yourself by ID card and then they will
send your new password BY LETTER (not email).

Now, PLEASE, when you go to their online banking site and run your
one_script_to_block_them_all.py or whatever, PLEASE, skip my bank
account, ok?

Banking regards,

Alex

Santander are a joke when it comes to security. Fed up of two years of battling with them to fix issues any other 
bank would have fixed in seconds, things like XSS on login pages etc. Time to hit full disclosure with some of these 
issues in the hope they'll change their game and start to take their customers security seriously:


I had to chuckle.
The Spanish banks gave 100% mortgages to people who could just barely
finance the interest at ultra-low rates.
Now, they're taking back those houses and flats, evicting the owners
(who can no longer pay) and putting them into rented apartments (for
slightly less than the interest rates).
The banks were bailed-out by the government, which has now got to be
bailed-out by the EU.

Do you honestly think that "customers" actually exist on the radar of
those banks?
Hell - who needs customers, when you can have a bail-out?
