    I seem to recall early news I dictating that many of the Target stores had been physically visited to obtain the data.

    That indicated a coordinated attack.

    I am unsure if this is still correct.

    Thanks for that.

    I note that Neiman-Marcus is also affected...I wonder how many others are going to come to light? I never applied for cards from these two, but I have used my credit card at both. Could this be another way to destroy businesses in the US? This seems to be too large to be random hacking.
    Coordinated hacking to gain funds to keep hacking.

    Very sophisticated these days, coordinated, and international.

    : It sure seems like we're hearing about new hackings quite regularly these days, doesn't it? Bringing us to our knees financially works just as well as militarily, it appears, and much easier to do.

    Greetings, SMTA.

    I do as often as I can. But there are occasions that just isn't possible. I don't even use a debit card. I end up walking around with a lot of cash on me and that can be pretty dangerous too if anyone is paying attention to you while you pull out your wallet to pay and see several bills inside your wallet.

    You seem like someone that can plan. Know the general price of what you are about to purchase, set that amount, in a clip or in a wad or what you like, and avoiding the wallet, pay for said item with the allocated cash.

    Vesper, today my dishwasher went on a rampage. Not only did I get to clean up the flood it created, I got to call a plumber, on a Sunday, mind you, to tell me what happened. It had died. He went with me to buy a new one, and fortunately he drives a truck so he hauled the new one back to my house. I had to use a credit card to pay for it, since I didn't have the cajillions of dollars it cost on hand, and the bank drive-thru only gives a $500 maximum. After installing the new appliance, plus the cost of buying it, I have had one of the most expensive Sundays I have ever had at home, and I didn't even get to enjoy myself by throwing a party or something! *sob*
