Hi all,

I just responded to a pm for help from a 1st time poster and registered on his stock / completely unmodified oscommerce site to test it. Checkout is broken and I cannot help him.

 

As an after thought I realised I had used my "generic / usual" password to create the account, now what i'm wondering is: Can oscommerce be modified in such a way as to store my password in plain text ? or am I just paranoid and is this impossible ?

I've had ramdom requests for help, which have rung alarm bells ie on things I have never posted about or got involved in, so I ignore them. Not sure what it's all about, but SPAM?

Something like that just wouldn't be logical. I would concentrate on where I submitted my password to. That is likely to be the biggest security risk in my opinion.

 

It is always a bad idea to create new accounts with a username or password that you use everywhere else. That too is a risk.

You shouldnt worry much, how would they track which site you use the password at? And you could go change your password on his site before he has a chance to look at it. :rolleyes:

By the way, I use the same customer password on all sites a work on, TesT1. Now hopefully no one logs in and changes my address. As for admin passwords thats different. I find little sticky notes with random passwords stuck all around the desk work well, unless someone finds some webcam footage! Oh crap!!
