MoviePass exposed thousands of unencrypted customer card numbers

The American subscription-based movie ticketing service MoviePass has leaked the payment card details of tens of thousands of customers via an unsecured database. The leaky server was discovered by researchers with SpiderSilk and contained  161 million records, over 58,000 of which mentioned payment card data.

The exposed data included MoviePass debit card numbers together with their expiry dates as well as the personal credit card numbers and matching expiry dates of certain customers.
