Personal details of all MoonPig customers exposed by security bug | Technology | The Guardian

MoonPig, which is owned by online photo printing company PhotoBox, said in a statement that “we are aware of the claims made this morning regarding the security of customer data within our apps.

“We can assure our customers that all password and payment information is and has always been safe. The security of your shopping experience at Moonpig is extremely important to us and we are investigating the detail behind today’s report as a priority. As a precaution, our apps will be unavailable for a time whilst we conduct these investigations and we will work to resume a normal service as soon as possible.

The headline is a little misleading – personal details have not been (as yet) posted to the internet. The capability to do that has been exposed by one person which Moonpig are now working hard to fix. It may be worth changing your password and perhaps removing/changing you default payment method on your account but no immediate panic it would appear.
