The Target store hacking scandal

By now most have heard that 40 million bank cards and credit cards are at risk and were stolen from an unknown hacker that pierced the security at the Target Stores.

They have no idea who did this but are following up with clues...40 MILLION! And have no clue.....

My prediction........

Since the NSA can see and gather every transaction, either they are responsible and will set up a patsy or they will be the ones to find the perpetrator. Either way, it will be used as a ploy or demonstration as to why we need this agency protecting us.....

What do you think?

Forgive my tinfoil hat but

Forgive my tinfoil hat but after hearing Sen. Jay Rockefeller was adding an amendment to the 2014 NDAA that essentially will give more power to the federal govt to control the internet and "cybersecurity", I'm beginning to wonder if this was a plan. Did that amendment make it through? Does anyone know? I have lost all trust in anything being done "for our safety."

Stolen Target Credit Cards Are Selling For $20 - $100 Each

Brian Krebs, the venerable security journalist who first reported the insane Target TGT +0.55% Holiday Security Breach that exposed up to 40 million credit cards, has located one of the black market sites selling the card information and says they are going for $20 to $100 each. They can be bought using, of course, Bitcoin, as well as other irreversible and semi-anonymous ways of sending money including Litecoin,

not quite over and done

every company you do business with (automatic payments) now has to update your new card info(you too), after you get that new card in the mail that is.
it was/is a disaster waiting to happen and it was predicted days before it happened.
somebody also needs to call western-union and tell them their whole business model has/is being replaced by zero or near zero bitcoin transaction fee's.

That's why people

need to cancel EFT/ACH/automatic recurrent transfers altogether. I understand it's convenience or nothing, but take better hold of your money and do all you can to avoid the upturning of your finances by remaining helpless to breaches and fraud.

Hegelian Dialectic

The technique is as old as politics itself. It is the process of bringing about change in a three-step process: Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis.

The first step (thesis) is to create a problem. The second step (antithesis) is to generate opposition to the problem (fear, panic and hysteria). The third step (synthesis) is to offer the solution to the problem created by step one: A change which would have been impossible to impose upon the people without the proper psychological conditioning achieved in stages one and two.
It has been applied to our economy, education, healthcare etc

This statement is incorrect...

the 16-digit number on the front of the debit/credit card, the CVV code on the reverse side and the expiration date are in no way revealing of the customers/members actual account/membership main number. That is why the cards can be blocked in order to stop any authorizations that are/may attempting/attempt to come through.
