The insecurity of Sirius XM Satellite radio…

I recently received a snail mail to renew my Sirius XM Satellite radio account.  They gave me two simple options for renewal: 1) Call via telephone  or  2) Renew online.  They were nice enough to include my username and password in the letter.  This is extremely alarming as it means Sirius.com is storing my password in plain text and not even hashed in their database.

*Yes, I do choose really long passwords.  I don’t have to remember it though; Lastpass takes care of that.
