An online broker for limousine and Town Car services has suffered a hack that spilled financial and personal information for more than 850,000 customers, including real estate mogul Donald Trump, basketball star LeBron James, actor Tom Hanks, and many more of the world's rich and famous, according to a published report.

The data trove was found on the same servers that stored source code for Adobe's ColdFusion and Acrobat applications, fueling speculation that the same hackers may be behind both attacks, KrebsonSecurity's Brian Krebs reported Sunday night. The archive file, which was listed as belonging to a firm called CorporateCarOnline, contained data for 241,000 high- or no-limit American Express accounts, as well as a wealth of personal details about the company's well-to-do clientele, including their pick-up and drop-off locations and travel itineraries.

"This database would be a gold mine of information for would-be corporate spies or for those engaged in other types of espionage," Krebs wrote. "Records in the limo reservation database telegraphed the future dates and locations of travel for many important people. A ridiculously large number of entries provide the tail number of a customer’s plane, indicating they were to be picked up immediately upon disembarking a private jet."

Google's Chrome team recently came under fire for its long-held practice of making saved passwords visible in plain text. If you hand your computer to a friend or leave it unguarded and unlocked, the friend or a passerby could go into Chrome's settings and view any website passwords you've saved without typing in your system password.

Chrome still makes passwords viewable in plain text by default, but the latest build of Chromium for Mac—the open source browser from which Chrome draws its code—gives users a new way to protect their passwords. If you type chrome://flags into the address bar, you'll find this:
