    Karate Mall Gunna Get Karate Chopped

    INFO SCIENCE: Doh! Looks like Karate Mall isn't the best place to buy your karate gear from.



    Why? Because your credit card number (and lots more information) shows up online after you order.

    Holy fuck! If that's at all real I'd remove the link, under current legislation you might be liable for whatever could arise from what is there. Sure google found it and cached it, sure karatemall is retarded as far as protecting their customers; but you blew the whistle. Nobody likes being told they're dumb. Just ask http://www.blogger.com/r?http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aldotwaste.com%2F">Vernon Blake.

    Boo to blogger for making you have to register, the bums! It's not anonymous when I say my name is Adrock diggity dawg, blogger you fools.

    Actually, after posting I did some checking. All the transactions were from 2000 and the text file is hosted in the Philippines. This makes me think that all of these credit card numbers were ripped off the store's server several years ago and have subsequently been canceled. I still feel sorry for the people though.

    You don't have to register for Blogger... there's a little link that says "post anonymously" under there. That works, no?

    Yeah, I ordered about 3 weeks ago and 2 days after their website stopped working. I Had to cancel my credit card not sure whats going on with that site. I hope that anyone reading this would heed my warnings and take their business elsewhere.
