    The guy was able to use the info on a Delta Air Lines boarding pass (fortunately his own) to get this full name, data of birth and partial credit card number. He was also offered the option to change his "Secure Flight" info. This was all on a public computer without actually logging on & entering his PIN.

    At least it seems Delta dealt with the security issue. Still, a couple questions come to mind...

    1. How many other airlines have security holes like this one?
    2. What access do TSA agents have to a traveler's personal information when they copy down info from a boarding pass? Is a TSA agent able to change someone's Secure Flight info?
