Gaming souk Steam spews credit card, personal info in Xmas Day security meltdown


I never really understood "save payment details" options (and why it's checked by default). It's like the merchants want the trouble of maintaining a database every hacker was after (Amazon, you better don't snooze). Same with regard to other personal info that's not required to complete one time payment.

Bunch of hoarders.
