jwilfong300 RSA FirstWatch is not naming the companies publicly--they have notified them.

Isn't it irresponsible to not say who the 40 retailers are? If I get hit, and you knew it would happen - you are an accomplice - if not a co-conspirator looking to have a big breach to enhance the security business. Unjust enrichment of RSA isn't it?

I'm assuming how this works is they notify the businesses and each business is responsible for the disclosure of the breach. It's not the researchers breach so they have no right or responsibility to disclose the information.

LOL - does anyone else see the word "RSA" in there, and choose not to bother reading past it? Who cares what they "found" - we already know they themselves sell backdoors in their crypto to anyone with a spare $10M to pay. They violated the trust of the entire internet (then lied about it, badly, when we found out) - who could possibly be left that trusts them enough to still read anything they've got to say?

And of all those 40 business that were notified, nobody, customers, employees etc. has come forth with any information? Sounds a bit strange.

Very interesting article about Point-to-Sale system (POS System) in that I have seen plenty of these systems from Mall retailers and still using Lotus Notes.
