Argos exposes customers' credit-card numbers in emails

High street retailer Argos has compromised its customers' security by sending their credit-card details - including the vital security code - in unencrypted emails.

The company has been including the customer's full name, address, credit-card number and three-digit CCV security code in order confirmation emails, which are sent once a customer has placed an order on the Argos website. Although the credit-card details don't appear in the text of the email itself, they are contained - in plain text - in the HTML code of the order confirmation.
