Largest data breach ever?

It’s just being reported that Heartland Data Systems, a credit card processing company, was breached for a large portion of 2008. They’ve just recently discovered the problem. They process CC transactions for millions of merchants and accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover. You may want to watch your statement carefully — but if the culprits have captured god-knows-how-many-numbers what’s the chance they would use yours?

Heartland has created a website about this event here: http://2008breach.com/
