AmEx credit cards security warningPeople with American Express credit cards beware: your information may not be as secure as you first think.

A computer engineer in the States has found a section of their website which says that it is secure is anything but, as it fails to encrypt your credit card details.

Joe Damato discovered that if you click the ‘Sign up for Daily Wish’ button and enter your personal information, it transmits it in clear text back to American Express’ servers.

The worry is that between your computer and their servers, your credit card information is open for anyone to steal, should they so wish.

In a message on Twitter, American Express have said that they are aware of the issue and are currently looking into it.
