+ - Seagate Leaking Customer Data->

Submitted by inject_hotmail.com
inject_hotmail.com (843637) writes "I just discovered that Seagate Recovery Services online submission form is leaking customer data. If you've ever submitted contact information to them, or any of their subsidiaries, anyone else on the Internet can find out your name, address, phone number (and a little bit more) by entering your Email address in the "Email Address" field.

I submitted data 5 years ago to a company that Seagate acquired 3 years ago (a different Email address), and my information is available for all to see.

Here's how it works: Once you enter the Email address, click off of the input field and wait for 3 seconds to see if the rest of the fields become populated. If not, the Email address is not in their system. If so, you are presented with the person's data. Furthermore, if data is present, the fields are disabled, so it's not possible to edit/remove it.

Check it out: https://services.seagate.com/online_request_form.aspx — enter test@test.com and you'll see some guy's information from Texas."
