What about Jenny?

Yes, Dave, even Jenny.  Everyone's information has been compromised.  All of it has been stolen, Dave.

Hey Modmins, can you ban this jerk for posting my personal information online?

A Message from the NSA


Yes, we have all of your personal information. Everything. But you don't have to worry about this if you aren't doing any thing wrong.

P.S. This is Edward Snowdon. Don't you believe it!

P.P.S. This is the Haxors. We have all of your personal information, too. Edward Snowdon is a bleeding heart liberal. He can bite our shiney metal asses. (Our asses are shiney metal because we can afford to wear pants made of cloth of gold. Booboizee prefers to wear pants made of Platinum, but then she's one of those LOTR nerds and she likes to pretend it is oricalchum or whatever they call that stuff that elves and dwarves wear.)

P.P.P.S. Ha! Hackers! We Illuminati had all of your personal data thousands of years before you were born! Only queers wear cloth of gold. The real conspirators wear invisible cloaks.

PPPPS from a ten year old boy:  Ha! ha! The Emperor has no clothes!

This is why I have 1,000 credit cards with no more than a $45 limit on each one. Sure people yell and hit me when I am paying for something like, say, a new HDTV at Best Buy, but you can never be too safe.

I am safe!  SAFE I SAY!

Is it time to panic yet?

Hell, my credit is so shiatty someone stealing my identity might actually improve it. If you use plastic, you'll get hacked; if you take cash, someone will rob you. I think the lesson here is: never go anywhere and never buy anything.

Parthenogenetic: jtown: Parthenogenetic: tricycleracer: The company now says that other kinds of information were taken, including mailing and email addresses, phone numbers and names.

Someone got into the loyalty program.  My email address isn't on my Amex stripe.

I got an email from Target about the breach, and was puzzled because I don't have a Target card.

Then I remembered the stuff I'd bought on Target baby and wedding registry lists.  D'oh.

That email may not have been from Target.  I hope you didn't click on any of its links.

Yeah, I thought about that too, since the header indicated the originating mail server was target.bfi0.com.  It turns out it was legit.   http://www.forbes.com/sites/jameslyne/2014/01/07/targets-latest-failu r e-and-how-to-spot-a-scam/

The email didn't contain any dodgy links or attachments.

Also, it was a verbatim copy of this:   https://corporate.target.com/discover/article/Important-Notice-Unauth o rized-access-to-payment-ca


At this point, I wouldn't even trust Target to secure their web servers.  Their IT security appears to be total clown shoes.  Card swipers compromised at a national level, transaction history database compromised, sitting on the knowledge for weeks so people will unwittingly continue to shop at their stores.  Nuke the whole thing from orbit.  Time to show the American public that some companies  aren't too big to fail.  For fark's sake, they've mishandled private data of 1/3 of the nation and exposed 40,000,000 to risk of significant financial problems.  Shut it down.  Shut it down forever.

I'm starting to feel bad that I spent almost a hundred bucks (cash!) there this week.  Only because they were the only store I could find that had what I wanted in stock.

Snarfangel: Lsherm:My bank canceled my debit card last week but the replacement hasn't shown up yet.  They said it could take up to three weeks.

Thanks Target.  Find the IT person who didn't do his goddamn job and pound his testicles with a 3 pound sledgehammer.


Target is committed to diversity in its workforce, and believes that woman have an equal right to pummeling by sledgehammers.


Women in IT have to work harder and smarter than men because IT is overrepresented by men.  So it follows the IT person who farked up is a man.

mayIFark: namegoeshere: Mr Namegoeshere got hit for $10. We don't know if that was a test, or if they have so many cards that they can hit each one for $10 in the hopes that more people will fail to notice such a small amount, and still make major money.

So yeah, new cards for all.

Or could it be some farker? 2 months at a time, you know.


Shhhh... I told him I got sponsored...  ; )
