Social networking service Blippy has become the latest technology firm to be linked to a data leak.
A report on technology finance news site Venturebeat said that Blippy had left user credit card details open to search queries, and had revealed multiple credit card numbers.
The report suggested that the social networking site, which allows users to share information on credit card purchases, could yield user data through a targeted Google search.
Shortly after the report was published, Blippy moved to ease panic on the incident. Co-founder Philip Kaplan said in the official company blog that only four users were affected by the disclosure, all of whom have been notified.
"We are serious about security and want to assure Blippy users that this was an isolated incident from many months ago in our beta test, and doesn't affect current users," Kaplan wrote.
"While it looks super-scary and is embarrassing to us, it's a lot less bad than it looks."
