Compaq leaves customer details open for all to see

Author: JT Smith

From The Register: "Compaq has outdone itself by leaving extensive customer details for anyone to see
on the Internet. For some reason it has decided that everyone in the world ought to
be able to see everyone who has bought a Pocket PC 2002 upgrade.

And that means name, address, customer number, order number -- it only stops
short of giving credit card details, although we suspect enough information is here
for someone imaginative to come up with something. There are ten of thousands of
people here. If you're a reseller, it's a dream come true."
