British Gas logins exposed online - BBC News

Is it just par the course that we are going to get all our details sold on now by a possible spotty teenager and there is nothing we can do about it, or do these companies need to seriously change how they do things and put into place security that will protect the customer.

Hang on a sec - it doesn't say they have had a security breach. Could have been a BG targeting phishing scam that harvested them or whatever.

If someone managed to hack info BG and steal *unencrypted* passwords (or steal encrypted passwords then break/circumvent the encryption) , then yes that is shocking.
