A MoviePass server that wasn't secured with a password containing 58,000 unencrypted MoviePass customer card and credit card numbers was left out in the open for anyone to find online, according to Tech Crunch .
The database contained full credit card numbers with detailed billing information that could potentially have been used for fraudulent purchases.
The security researcher who discovered the database reportedly tried to alert MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe over the weekend, but the company didn't pull the servers offline until Tech Crunch reached out to the company on Tuesday.
