Modernperformance unsecured site?

Post by gilly02le » Thu May 15, 2008 3:31 pm

Has anyone else noticed how many people left reviews saying they had their Credit Card info jacked/identity stolen on modernperformance.com... Are these legit claims i'm wondering? its a great site, but i would hate to think they are that sloppy with their security...

Really? Well that makes sense. My debit card was hijacked last week. In the last 2 monthes, Modern was one of the 4 places I used my card in the last 2 months. Where are you finding these other reviews?

they are running the transaction section of their site on a SSL. but, that doesn't mean hackers couldn't still get to the information.

not surprised if they are true. All of those carts are brutally insecure. phpnuke (and similar portals), zen cart, cube cart (and similar carts) are some of the most vulnerable scripts on the internet today. Message board scripts like phpbb are in a solid third place.

Me and a friend ran a test on a similar cart a few weeks ago. We were able to use one of many XSS (Cross site scripting) exploits. We set our trap and once the admin of the cart logged in, we had direct access to their mysql database. Names, addresses, credit card numbers etc. We had access everything.

If we were malicious douchebags we really could have cleaned house with this info. We could have charged a million things on those cards, sold the personal information such as name, address, age, what they bought to spammers. Not to mention having the ability to ruin the business owners reputation. These scripts are not worth the hassle.

for an extra level of security for online purchases you could always set up paypal on your card, then use paypal's virtual debit card for a one time use number.

Hmm, I never saw any reviews like that on the site, but I too have had my CC number stolen once, not long after one of my past orders with them. I buy a ton of stuff with them. I'm thinking I may just do over the phone from now on!

This doesn't help much either. You are bound by payal's Fraud Policies which more often than not, are not in your favor. It will help prevent any further money being pulled from your account but you will still be at a loss.

If modern knows about this, they must be pretty stupid to keep that cart online. They should hire someone to help beef up security.

Interesting... because I also purchased some things from them back in January and a month or so later my bank's fraud dept called me to say they had some suspecious charges to my card. Turns out it wasn't me, it was someone else so they took the charges off without question and reissued me a new card.

Guess I'll be calling from now on...

Damn this is VERY interesting because I'm in the same boat. Ordered through their cart a few months ago and I found several charges to my account for different "websites" popping up 2-3 times a day soon after that. I have been trying to figure out where the hell someone got my info from but this does lead to a very possible explanation... I'll have to let my bank's investigators know about this.

Man am i ever glad i brought this up. Seems like a lot of ppl have been effected.
Either way, at first i thought maybe it was competing business' slandering their site, to hurt thier sales, but now that i hear a lot of you have had problems, There is no doubt in my mind thier site sucks as far as security goes.

Happen to have a link to the other discussions with people saying they may have been affected? I say 'may' because it's not proven this is the source so it's not fair to say Modern is the culprit when it could be something else.

i guess this increases the suspicions then. I wonder if they know this crap is going on?

They should really have someone look over their setup.

There's F'in proof right there! :cussing: . These are the people that are running $29.99, $9.98 charges on my bank card (thank GOD I got it replaced!! The charges are coming from CCBILL.COM, easynews.com, and eubill.com (IIRC on the 3rd name). If you call the number they provide you with they'll just say that they're a "warehouse for 20,000 websites" and that they NEED your credit/bank info to tell you which website you're being charged for. F'in losers. :cussing:

I wonder if they have edited them out, because i can't find the reviews mentioning fraud, For that matter, i can't find Even one bad review on there site now.. which makes me think they probably just deleted those reviews....
damn it, now i look like a liar...:( , but its all good i have no reason to bring this up if i hadn't seen them on there site, since personally i've had no problems whatsoever with thier service.

I read them as well. I'm a little weired out that they deleted so many reviews about that. I think it would be a sour move for them not to take action about this.

Yep, and even not on the topic of fraud and ID theft, they deleted my review on the SRT 3" O2 housing. I gave it a poor review for not coming with the bolts, and because MP wouldn't respond to my e-mails or return my call concerning that.

CCBill.com is most commonly used by pr0n sites, just FYI, also a lot of the info is stolen for online MMORPG sites.

That actually bothers me. I love modern, but that isn't right. I understand from their perspective, that it may hurt business. But i like reading reviews before i buy something. If there is enough negative reviews they should stop selling that product.
