images/news/security.jpgYesterday was a big day for social-oversharing site Blippy, which lets members automatically post their purchases to the Internet. The company announced $11.6 million in funding and was profiled in The New York Times.

Overnight, at least one Internet power user figured out a way to search for Blippy members’ credit card numbers on Google. A fairly obvious search for “from card” this morning returned dozens of results that included full credit card numbers.

VentureBeat reporters deduced that all are Citibank-issued MasterCard numbers. We’re reluctant to publish further details yet. We’ve contacted Citibank, Blippy CEO Ashvin Kumar and cofounder Philip Kaplan, and some of the people whose card numbers turned up.
