Unsecured JobsCentral Login

While I was searching for job opening at JobsCentral.sg, and discovered that JobsCentral.sg website is using visible text field for password in the user login box.

HTML code shown that password field is coded using Text type instead of Password type.

However, login box at JobsCentral.com.sg are secured.

Sgnic’s whois search revealed both JobsCentral.com.sg and JobsCentral.sg are owned by the same organization. So, JobsCentral.sg is not a phishing web site.


I’m not sure why the developer is so careless in this area or JobsCentral.sg is just meant for “testing” only. Even if it’s for testing only, security should be number one concern, because thousand of job seekers stored their private information and resume into JobsCentral’s database.

  1. Hello Hann Eng,

    I am in charge of JobsCentral and came across your blog today. Thank you for taking the time to blog about us. It is only through the active participation of the internet community that we can improve our services.

    With respect to your post, the site in question is a development site and is not connected to any databases of jobseekers. So the concern about security is not valid. However, we do agree some visitors may visit JobsCentral.sg. As such, we have taken your comments and added in a large text on top to state that this is a development site.

    Once again, thank you very much for caring enough to write about this issue. We would like to send you a pair of free movie tickets in appreciation. Do reply me with your address or some way to send them to you.

    Also, I would appreciate it if you could post my reply in your blog as there is no comment feature. Just so that readers will know that the team at JobsCentral takes privacy and our business seriously.

    Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.

    yours sincerely,
    Lim Der Shing
