When a customer buys something from my store, it automatically sends a confirmation email that shows the user's full credit card number in plain text. It also shows the expiration date and CVV2 number.

This is very bad.

All of the other status changes send emails to the customer with the numbers obscured.

Why is the initial confirmation email showing their credit card numbers? I've gotten complaints from customers that will never shop with us again!

The CC is encrypted in database, and can only be viewed as admin via the web interface.

You better check for misconfiguration or hacking?

You must have a modification that is showing the wrong order_info field.... Normally only the last 4 are shown on anything other than an admin view within the store. I don't believe ANY of the invoices are designed to show the cc number when printed or shown outside the admin view.
