Whitepages Pro, a digital identity verification company, has introduced its Transaction Risk API. The API provides instantaneous risk scoring for transactions of all type. The risk score is based on email, IP, phone, address and name of the party attempting to complete a transaction.
A security researcher recently noticed what he called "suspicious" API calls when ordering a Starbucks gift card. Because Starbucks runs a bug bounty program, Curry dug a little more. Soon thereafter, Curry found Starbucks had potentially exposed personal records of around 100 million customers.
