A serious malfunction that occurred this evening (Tuesday) in the application of the credit company Max, presented customers with billing details and personal details of other customers.

"It's very stressful to find out that you are entering an application that is supposed to be secure (in my case with a fingerprint) and not only is it hacked, but every time I logged in other people's names, amounts, card details, email address and phone number appeared," added Yifat.

"I entered the application and suddenly I saw something else - a charge that was not mine. Then I saw that the name was wrong," says another customer.

Sahar Avitan, the CEO and owner of the Kieran company, explains in a conversation with Walla!

" Unwanted information for parties who should not be exposed to the information, this information can be misused by parties who can exploit this bug to perform unauthorized actions or be exposed to financial information that is not theirs," adds cyber intelligence researcher Tom Malka.
