comment What's the impact of disclosing the front-face of a credit or debit card?
@Polynomial +1. I worked in retail for 5 years and there was many a time I would manually just enter the credit card number/expiration date, but never the CVV. Some systems (like the one I worked at) don't even have a place to put the CVV in.

comment Is there any explanation (other than storing plaintext) for case-insensitive passwords?
I favor usability in the correct context. (Not my banking, though!) As long as the website implements fairly decent password requirements and some form of invalid password logic (say after 5-10 attempts) that bans the IP address, I don't see the issue. These days, you got to worry more about DDNS attacks than say a brute-force or dictionary attack. Hackers don't typically try the front door anyway.

answered “Username and/or Password Invalid” - Why do websites show this kind of message instead of informing the user which one was wrong?
