Re: betting on a breach
@Mike, that would definitely be the ideal scenario, but obviously not realistic to do overnight. There are Internet security efforts under way, of course, as well as secure software development initiatives. But it will always be a battle between good and evil. 

That's not to say everyone can't raise the bar more, though. It is frustrating to see the same old, same old, breaches again and again.

Re: betting on a breach
Hello, This is my first time commenting. What do we expect. As an avid reader I see every industry being attacked and breached.  Target didn't start this as attacks have been going on for years.  Folks, my two cents are the following.  It's time to start over.  The internet, software, everything with Security baked in from the ground up. It's to easy to now and patches won't cut it.  I know it's a radical idea but somethings got to change to make it harder for the bad guys. I'm sure there is going to be some of you that will flame me but do you have a better idea?

VP Mark Bower's solution to neutralise the risk of malware
As VP Product Management Mark Bower stated, "By now, every retailer is aware of the risks of malware in the POS, the impact, and the simple fact being compliant to PCI doesn't equate to mitigating advanced threats that no doubt again stole the gold in this case. The only way to neutralise the risk of malware in the point of sale (POS) systems is to avoid any sensitive data passing in and through the vulnerable POS or retail IT. Hundreds of thousands of merchants already do this today with proven approaches using the latest innovations in data-centric security and are able to brush off such attacks like water off a duck's back. These risks are totally avoidable – and at a fraction of the cost of the fallout from dealing with the consequences." – Voltage Security

Re: another day...
My reaction was, "Wow, only a month had gone by before reporting it."  Most companies seem to wait several months, if they ever report a breach.  But that's a lot of people affected by that breach.

another breach. Interesting that a month goes by between the incident and the notification. I wonder when they found out about it and how?

Re: betting on a breach
Wow, glad I never stepped foot in a SuperValu.  I have not interest in having to change all of my auto bill pay accounts again because some crummy hacker somewhere may have gotten my Visa number (thank you Target)...

betting on a breach
I would be shocked if there wasn't a breach of debit and credit-card data here. Not clear why they are being so cagey and cautious unless they were at risk of being outed about the intrusion, and wanted to get on top of the story. Either way, it's smart for SuperValu to start offering credit monitoring from the get-go.
