Some things of interest that happened while we were down

Well, while we’ve been offline, we’ve had some interesting posts come through I want to talk about. I’m going to condense it in to one post for everyone to read at their leisure.

  • 3 Million Customer Credit, Debit Cards Stolen in Michaels, Aaron Brothers Breaches is an update to the story I saw and talked about on this blog. 3 million is still a lot of people who were effected, and its better than the 40 million that were effected by Target, and I’m glad for that. I would’ve been happier if it was the 1.5 million or so I initially saw, but investigations always turn up something different. I hope for the peoples sake that nothing happened like fraud during this time. Seems as though there were two different breaches, which makes it hard. Thats too bad.
  • Critical Java Update Plugs 37 Security Holes is something you should take a look at. Thats a large update. If you don’t use Java, remove it. Thats what people are saying to do.
  • Hardware Giant LaCie Acknowledges Year-Long Credit Card Breach I don’t remember if I covered this off hand, but a year long breach? This is just gone too far. When I read this, I was like “WTF?” How could a breach go unnoticed for a year? Well, I hope that people are OK, and that no fraud took place.

  • Crimeware Helps File Fraudulent Tax Returns in the better late than never department, this I think is the most important article you read. While tax day has come and gone, this should not be surprising in the least. Criminals will do anything to get at your money, be careful and stay safe as you can.

We covered heartbleed before this recent downtime, so that is it. Some big time news. Comments? The boards await you.
