NEWARK, N.J. — In a July 25 story, The Associated Press reported that hackers stole about 800,000 card numbers in a 2011 attack on the Visa network. The story should have made clear that the attack was directed at a licensee in Jordan, Visa Jordan Card Services, and not on the central payment processing network used by Visa Inc.

So we go after International criminals and bring them to the U.S. if I understand correctly. Then taxpayers will pay for their residency here for the length of their stay, while thousands if not hundreds of thousands keep hacking away at the corporations. Why doesn't the corporations foot the entire bill since they put our information at jeopardy?

And my credit card number is worth only 20% the value of a European card on the black market? Come on, Wall Street bankers, quit hanging the customer out to dry and adopt those higher encryption standards! Why do we have to lag behind the Europeans like some second tier country?

The only force that has any chance of improving the security of online transactions are massive financial losses like these. If these corporations leave their networks vulnerable to thieves then they deserve to be hit with huge losses. It's a pity that the CEOs of these operations are allowed to keep their jobs. I bet they were all warmed by their technical staff that this would happen. The idiots in the "C" suites will remain unscathed by this and rates will increase for customers. Same old same old.
