This is hardly the same thing. E-mail addresses are public, credit card numbers aren't. Email addresses can be gotten by brute-force checking fairly easily without even cracking the machine. card numbers can't.So your auditor wouldn't mind if you kept an unencrypted list of credit card numbers on a DMZ box, because if somebody hacks the box they can gather those over time? :)
What would your auditor think about your secondary MX being used as a DOS amplifier because it sends out thousands of bogus bounces to forged addresses ?
