Limo firm hacked; politician, celeb data breached

An Internet security firm says a limousine software company has been hacked, exposing credit card numbers and potentially embarrassing details about close to 1 million customers, including politicians, star athletes and corporate executives.

Alex Holden, chief information security officer of Milwaukee-based Hold Security, said Monday he discovered the breach at Corporatecaronline and informed its owner more than a month ago.

Holden says customers' credit card numbers, pick-up and drop-off information and other personal details had been stolen.

Corporatecaronline is a limousine software company based in Kirkwood, Mo. Car services buy the software and use it to streamline reservations, dispatching and payments. Owner Dan Leonard didn't return an Associated Press call for comment.
