Say a credit card number stored in a database. Using standard PHP/ASP calls, is it possible to output the original value of the  credit card number to a form field? Is this a safe thing to do?

I am a member of an non-techie industry group. They store our credit card numbers in their database, and when I log on to their site to renew, the credit card number is automatically filled in a web form for renewal.

This doesn't seem safe to me.

Can someone explain if outputting the initial value of an encrypted value is possible?
