    Re: Hope you didn't go to Target on Black Friday

    buddy of mine got his entire account cleaned out. he's getting the money back, but not until December 27th.

    i'm pretty tolerant of most people; even assholes. however, i really dislike thieves, burglars, and those that prey on the elderly.

    Well everybody here is treated as a criminal first so maybe that is why.

    The Banks were looking for any way to protect themselves from losses so they went to all chips.

    I am surprised the US didn't. It is such an easy thing to do. I wonder why they didn't.

    Yes it is just another example how those who try to live their lives in an honest/honorable way end up paying for the cleanup of the piles of cramp dumped by the lawless/immoral ones. The consumer ends up paying as well as anyone still left paying taxes through the cost of prosecuting the criminals and incarcerating them.

    Yeah and that's IF.....we can get our hands on those overseas. Although I am hearing now that the Secret Service thinks this may have been done by a Crime Organization. Speculation at this point IMO.

    Update: Hackers may have got Pin Numbers......now one bank thinks they will be able to break the encryption code. Which then would allow them to withdraw money from peoples bank accounts.


    Exclusive: Target hackers stole encrypted bank PINs - source

    The hackers who attacked Target Corp and compromised up to 40 million credit cards and debit cards also managed to steal encrypted personal identification numbers (PINs), according to a senior payments executive familiar with the situation.

    One major U.S. bank fears that the thieves would be able to crack the encryption code and make fraudulent withdrawals from consumer bank accounts, said the executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the data breach is still under investigation.

    "We continue to have no reason to believe that PIN data, whether encrypted or unencrypted, was compromised. And we have not been made aware of any such issue in communications with financial institutions to date," Snyder said by email. "We are very early in an ongoing forensic and criminal investigation."

    Target has not said how its systems were compromised, though it described the operation as "sophisticated." The U.S. Secret Service and the Justice Department are investigating. Officials with both agencies have declined comment on the investigations.....snip~

    Update about Target.....the matter has become worse.


    Target’s payment card nightmare gets worse.....

    Attention 70 million Target shoppers: the people who stole your credit and debit card information also have your mailing address, email account and phone number."

    That was the news coming from Minneapolis this morning as the nation’s second largest discounter revealed yet more disturbing details surrounding the theft of customer payment card information during the critical holiday shopping season.

    Previously, Target (TGT) had claimed that “only” 40 million customers had been impacted and the exposure was limited to card information. Today with one sentence Target almost doubled the number of customers whose data were violated, and expanded the degree of that violation considerably.....snip~

    That's a little unnerving. I'm glad I didn't shop there. But I suppose it could just as easily be someplace else next time, where I have just shopped.
