Yet another Security breach at a Financial Credit Handler

17 06 2005

MasterCard is busily notifying 14 million of its clients that their identities and financial information may have been compromised.

This is just great!  No wonder so many people in Vancouver prefer to keep all their money stashed in the mattress.

One of my favourite lines:

CardSystems was hit by a computer virus that captured customer data for the purpose of fraud, said company spokeswoman Sharon Gamsin.

Never heard of AV? C’mon, they sell it down at Best Buy or Future Shop for about $60.  With the money these @#&*~$^’s make off the back of the average consumer, you’d think this would be a drop in the bucket.  Winners.  Fire their IT staff!  And while you’re at it, fire the loser that brought in the infection!
