Potential Walgreens Privacy and HIPAA issues?

It appears that Walgreens has some potentially serious Privacy and HIPAA issues on their web site.

We have a report about a parent who was creating a Walgreens account for their child so they could print out the receipts. It appears that you can create an account for anyone as long as you know their birthday and name.

The steps are as follows. Continue reading Potential Walgreens Privacy and HIPAA issues?

Intuit Continues with terrible privacy practices

Intuit Continues with terrible privacy .  Three years later, Intuit again has associated other people’s email addresses with my account and my email address

Where is the verification of emails?  We wrote about this three years ago here:

And Intuit is still unable to correctly verify email addresses.

Brian Krebs has written about it recently here.  Intuit has failed for years.

 

 

None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right.

“I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.” “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn’t give it up. We shouldn’t give in to scare-mongering.”

Democrat Obamacare Architect brags about stupidity of American people

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that.  In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass… Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
