Following the recent discovery of Blippy users' credit card information on Google, the social networking site has announced plans to hire a chief security officer.
"Blippy Co-founder and CEO Ashvin Kumar said in a blog post this week that the slip-up occurred as a result of a technical oversight back in February that caused raw transaction data to appear within the HTML code on some Blippy pages for about half a day," writes Computerworld's Joan Goodchild.
"Kumar said Blippy executives have hammered out a security plan that aims to prevent further security missteps," Goodchild writes. "It includes hiring a Chief Security Officer and associated staff that will focus solely on issues relating to information security."
