I’m a little worried about our credit card safety

I’m a little worried about those of us with credit cards. The Latest breach is dealing with a well known merchant who I haven’t heard being advertised in awhile. Thanks to Krebs on Security Hackers Steal Card Data from Neiman Marcus where Neiman Marcus is I believe a well known furniture store. I’ve seen reports of two others who were possibly breached. On a related note, an article indicated that malware was responsible for the breach at Target, and upwards of 70 million people have been effected. Since I was home sick today, Twit’s Tech News Today was not able to confirm if it was 70 million, 110 million, or what, but this is big. I’m worried about that, because we can’t really protect ourselves from this type of attack. If malware is installed where the data must be non-encrypted because of the approval process portion of the transaction, anything experts may suggest won’t work. The latest from Krebs on Target is this article entitled Target: Names, Emails, Phone Numbers on Up To 70 Million Customers Stolen so be as careful as you can is all I can say.

I wonder why the credit card industry hasn’t changed the way credit cards are given? I hear Europe has adopted different types of cards where you don’t have a strip, but I really don’t know what kinds of cards are out there. I’d be interested in hearing from someone who has used a different type of card and their experience. Please contact me through my web site or go to the about page on the blog and contact me that way. There has to be an answer to the uprise of breaches as these. I do hope we learn more soon. Leave your thoughts, and please no bashing.
