Yesterday, it came to light that the Starbucks mobile payment app for iOS wasnt totally secure: the app was storing usernames, passwords, and email addresses in an unencrypted plain text format. Starbucks claimed that it had already fixed the issue, but the security researcher who originally identified the problem begged to differ, saying that Starbucks would need to actually update its app to remedy the situation. Now, Starbucks says it will do just that. In a press statement issued by the company, Starbucks CIO Curt Gartner writes that while there is no indication that any customer has been impacted by this or that any information has been compromised, the company will indeed update its app. While the statement only describes the app fix in extremely broad terms, weve confirmed with a Starbucks representative that the app will no longer store user data in cleartext after the update is complete.
