    Nationwide retail giant Target is investigating a data breach potentially involving millions of customer credit and debit card records, multiple reliable sources tell KrebsOnSecurity. The sources said the breach appears to have begun on or around Black Friday 2013 — by far the busiest shopping day the year.Update, Dec. 19: 8:20 a.m. ET: Target released a statement this morning confirming a breach, saying that 40 million credit and debit card accounts may have been impacted between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, 2013.

    Banks could stop credit card fraud if they wanted but they make huge money off data breaches and we all get fucked :grad:

    To be fair, healthcare.gov hasn't had even near 40 million people visit much less actually sign up.

    I guess I mean this is what is actually reported in the press. Shit, I've had 3 new cards issued by Citi in the last few years with new numbers, etc, each time because of some kind of "data-breach."

    And I rarely use that card.

    Haven't ever noticed any strange charges, either.

    That's so much worse IMO. I did get a Discover card jacked once (it was my fault; dropped the fucker in a gas station lot) and had that shit resolved in a week with no "real" money lost.

    Debit is so much worse. I won't use 'em. Buddy of mine got his shit ganked and was fucked up for a while because of it. The money was taken from his acct and went to some shitburg in Eastern Europe.

    I don't use debit cards either. Shoot, credit's so easy to get these days, I don't understand why everyone doesn't just use a c.card (but what do I know) ...

    Exactly. Me: I've got platinum care through my employer; so ACA don't mean anything to me either way. That said, I have a good chuckle over the folks at the bottom of the barrel who have shit health insurance or no health insurance but are screaming and yelling and towing the political line that ACA will be the death of the country as we know it. I cannot tell you how many small employers have been RUINED in my area because of the existing health care costs. My attitude: If you like your shit health insurance, you should be able to go bankrupt because of it.

    I don't know much about this, but how do banks make money off of data breaches? Don't they get hit with fines?

    I don't get it either, although I don't think they get fined.

    But don't they have to cover the losses? Even if they're insured, surely it ups their premiums and there is likely a deductible.

    :dontknow:

    Although I do wonder how hard they try to prevent such breaches. How many times have they made the decision to enhance corp profits at the expense of data security?

    they sell data protection services, use it as an excuse to raise fees and I am pretty sure they write all the losses of their taxes among other ways. there are no real fines.

    the banks created this CC insecurity problem and if it wasn't financially in their interest they would just change the system.

    all the responsibility and pain is put on the consumer
