Bulk Reef Supply - Caution on Online Security

Postby ejmitch on Mon Mar 05, 2012 4:10 pm

I am starting out 2-part dosing Calc / Alk and ordered a kit from BRS. This was my first order so I got setup with an account. Their first email, a "Welcome" email, included my account name and my account password. This was all in cleartext. (Reminder: email is not encrypted.) I have no comment on their items or ordering security, but this is a big online security breech. Be wary and use a password you don't use anywhere else when you first order from here.

Eric,

Did you let them know? It always amazes me how much bigger e-commerce sites don't know about e-commerce technology. I got hit a few years back when a big electronics part store got hacked and did not have anyone's credit card info stored. Wont hurt to point it out to them because the first class action suit will kill them!
