FTA: Michaels [...] operates 1,137 Michaels stores and 122 Aaron Brothers framing shops.

I don't know subby, the hackers might be getting framed.

So, when will these lazyfark store chains join the rest of the world and put encrypted chips on their freaking cards?

I fear the day that these hackers break into Transunion/Equifax/Experian. God, if that ever happens...in the words of comedian Jim Short ... "farkING fark! WE'RE ALL farkING farkED!"

You want to rail against the banks for not imposing that change.

The banks and retailers end up liable for all of the fraud, if they don't care, I don't care.

They're sort of started. Chase issues some cards with a chip, but they're only chip-and-sign. They won't give you a PIN, even if you want to use them overseas.

There's a sports metaphor about dropping the ball on the one yard line; in this case, Chase dropped it somewhere around mid field.

And you know this has gotta be the tip of the iceberg. Its all so farked up. When Amazon and Paypal get hacked then we may as well just start over.

What makes you think giving more of your data to Target is a good idea?

All security measures are there to shift the blame for the bank's pisspoor security to the customer.

Meh, it's probably just the NSAssholes keeping us free for freedoms sake.

We're about to return to a cash society on this shiat, right? Between the 2-3% swipe fee to the merchant, the 12%+ intrest and fees, and the fact ain't nobody got a job anymore.

You think Target just decided to set up its own credit monitoring division just to appease their customers? They're footing the bill to an established credit monitoring company.

Which they aren't paying for out of the goodness of their heart, it being required by law in cases like this.

So, my theory is that Lifelock is causing these hacking attempts so they can bump up their subscribers who are "scared" of all their data up on the cloud (whatever "that" is!).

And just to make us all feel nice and fuzzy inside, I will point out that even that cost will be passed on to customers.

Target will loose little once the black eye clears up.
