    Target May Be Liable For Up To $3.6 Billion From Credit Card Data Breach! Were you one of them?



    Can’t say I’ve been to Target recently, so I’m likely not affected. I don’t have anything against them, I’ve shopped there dozens of times, just not lately.

    Oh, and like Columbo, one more thing…can we all please realize that “PIN” stands for “personal identification number,” and try NOT to say “PIN number?” It’s not a number for another number!

    I havn’t shopped at Target in a long time (it’s too damned frustrating getting in and out of their parking lot) so I wasn’t affected.

    But what I’d like to know is when the hell are retailers going to be forced to bear the full costs of their data breaches? Giving customers 10% off doesn’t cut the mustard.

    The retailer or business involved should be required to provide free identity protection service that covers all costs (time & money) for anyone affected by the breach for a period of 10 years or something like that. And I mean THEY spend the hours on the phones with various companies, banks and whatnot, not the ID theft victim.

    Until we have a business that is driven out of business complying with these requirements, there will be no incentive for proper security to be maintained.


    I tried about 10 times to post a longer reply here but it won’t show up for some reason. I was trying to say something about there being no legal concept of “computer malpractice” although it’s been tried several times.
