US issued card holders take note ( security breach issue )

Visa and Mastercard warn of security breach

Visa and Mastercard have warned US banks that details of credit card holders' personal information could be at risk after a security breach.

The Wall Street Journal quoted its own industry sources as saying card-processing firm Global Payments was the company that suffered the breach.

Re: US issued card holders take note ( security breach issue )

More than 10 mil accounts possibly breached.

Quote:
The card associations stated that the breached credit card processor was compromised between January 21 and February 25, 2012. The alerts also said that full Track 1 and Track 2 data was taken – meaning that the information could be used to counterfeit new cards.
