Report: Starbucks app leaves passwords vulnerable

By
January 16, 2014

Starbucks’ mobile app leaves customers’ passwords open to attack, according to a research report.

The popular app, which allows Starbucks SBUX, Fortune 500 customers to purchase drinks and food directly from their smartphones, saves customers’ usernames, passwords and other personal information in plain text. That means a hacker could pick up a left-behind phone, plug it into a laptop and easily recover a Starbucks customer’s password without even knowing the smartphone’s PIN code.
