Poorly designed online interfaces make identity theft simple

Risks Digest is a good source of information on all sorts of risks -- including privacy risks. Recently, a contributor posted about a particular experience he had renewing this AAA membership: The Risks Digest Volume 24: Issue 11.

I am not sure someone can steal your identity using your AAA membership, but interfaces like this attached to something more sensitive may lead to big problems.

2019-06-28: Updated to remove the name of the Risks contributor and the content of his contribution, at his request.
