If the system gets cracked, credit card numbers are there for the taking even if it's not in the admin. As was stated before, there are a few files that store the credit card number, that anyone with root access can easily find. Just have a look in the ORDERS directory. Plain text credit card numbers.
Other shopping cart software does this for the admins.
Just found out today that I also need to modify the cart to get credit card billing information (yes, a third set of address fields). Sigh.
P.S. If someone here knows how to do this but doesn't want to post on the list, please email me privately.
