Glitch in Bethesda Support System Accidentally Gives Users Access to Other Customer Info

Earlier today, Reddit user Jessiepie created a thread on the Fallout subreddit with a disturbing message. Namely, the bag which the studio included with copies of the Fallout 76 Power Armour Edition.

Bethesda soon followed this with a seemingly more-fitting offer: an actual canvas bag, just like the publisher had originally promised. The latter turned out to be a nylon replacement, so Bethesda eventually announced that it would upgrade the bags to canvas.

Bethesda was hoping to set a new standard with its recent release of Fallout 76, but it's run into its fair share of trouble as well, between people asking for refunds and wondering why they got the wrong type of bag with their Power Armor Edition of the game.

Not only did this allow them to see active support tickets; they could also see the personal information of the people who had submitted them! This includes contact details, addresses, and credit card info. We're talking mailing addresses, email addresses, and credit card numbers.
