Re: Yikes.
ACM, Question:  How could a merchant possibly be compliant to any standard if they are breached?  It's ridiculous to think a merchant is compliant after the fact either.

Re: Nice Holiday Present
Thanks for link from Avivah. She calls out something that has always frustrated me about PCI: that a certified compliant company can be retroactively found non-compliant if there's a breach. The card brands seem to want to promote the ridiculous fantasy that PCI is a perfect system, and if a compliant company gets breached, then it must have been because weren't really compliant. It's bizarre logic.

Re: Nice Holiday Present
After hearing the news about Target hackings,  I checked my statement and lo and behold,  (I just shopped the Target store in Kearny Mesa San Diego (Othello) and my $81.00 bill turned into $101.00, I think the store manager might want to check one of their employees ... at around 2:45pm 12/19/13 description of cashier: heavy set Black (sorry not a racist ! just a description)  Unfortunately I threw out my receipt after unloading the items.  Managers only have to remember one of their other employee, named Teresa who did the same thing !

Re: Nice Holiday Present
I also shopped at Target during the affected period, and am really frustrated. This breach underscores the broken nature of the payment card system. Gartner's Avivah Litan wrote a good analysis: http://blogs.gartner.com/avivah-litan/2013/12/19/what-can-we-learn-from-the-target-breach/.

Re: Nice Holiday Present
We've used the Target store credit card (Red Card) for our recent purchases there. Wondering if Target is better able to protect customers in that instance. If the crooks have that card #, at least they couldn't use it anywhere other than Target.

Nice Holiday Present
As someone who shopped at Target during the breach period, I'll be spending the holidays taking a closer look at my card statements.

Yikes.
What a nightmare. While Target should be commended for coming clean so quickly, it's unsettling that this type of ordeal could happen to such a large corporation and affect such a large number of people.
