UK credit card holders may have something to worry about after 19,000 different credit cards were listed online and fully accessible via a simple web search. Among the data were names, home addresses, and full credit card details.

The information is believed to have been placed online by criminals that were going to sell the data to other nefarious users. Data from Visa, Mastercard, and American Express cards was listed.

A spokesman form APACS said that most of the cards had already been canceled that were on the list. The data first appeared on an unsecured server in Vietnam that has been closed. The cached page was still available on Google though.
