Just got


 

 

 

 

 

Hi Tripp,

 

We wanted to let you know about a privacy issue that has been reported by a YouShop customer. It appears that this user was able to see some limited account information in another YouShop user’s account after logging into the site.

 

We have taken immediate steps to further encrypt and protect your account information and our techies are working round the clock to ensure the problem is completely eliminated but as an added precaution we are temporarily restricting login access to the New Zealand Post online account until further notice.

 

We are confident the issue is restricted to a very small number of cases and no financial information has been divulged.

 

Please rest assured that any parcels you have in transit will be processed and delivered to you as normal and we are doing everything we can to get the login access to our site back up and running again as soon as possible.

 

We are really sorry for the inconvenience and if you have any concerns or questions, please contact our Customer Service Centre.

 

We will update you as soon as we have more information.

 

Thank you,

 

The YouShop team

Yeah that's the problem, I've got stuff waiting to be paid for but can't make the payment because I can't log in, hopefully they can get this sorted out soon.

I applaud them for taking down access whilst they fix the problem instead of trying to do it in the background and not tell anyone.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

I want to pay for some postage so I don't have to set foot in the post office (and get my discount)
Until I can sign in, that isn't happening.

Yes you can, just won't be able to pay and have it sent to you until the website is up and running again.

I just used them last week and noticed I could see track and trace details from someone else under my account... Didn't really bother me too much as it didn't show any delivery addresses but thought it odd.
