    Does anyone have stats on repeat (being hacked) offenders? Is going with a processor who hasn't been hacked better than signing with one that has (supposedly) recovered from a hack?

      Re: recidivism?

      IF you can find someone who was hacked and has correctly rectified the problem I think that would be the best option. Problem is in the correctly rectified bit, and knowing it. I don't trust the 'haven't publicized that they've been hacked' list is equal to the 'haven't been hacked yet list.' I knew a guy who wound up with a compromised bank account. As near as he was able to figure, it was hacked from the bank side. Spent about six months with the bank trying to "fix the problem" before they finally issued him a new account and debit card. Full value for everything and no reports to the police because they didn't want to get a bad rep. Moderately well known local chain on our side of the pond. Yeah, it was pre- Disclosure laws, but given what they were willing to do then, I'm not sure I trust them to follow it now.

      So you're probably stuck picking one from the 'haven't publicized that they were hacked list' anyway.

    I think you might find Global Payments was a customer of Visa, not the other way around...

    This is in 'earlier stories' and it has only 5 posts.

    Last week with a similar story I responded with a wet joke to the effect that I was bored with these reports and I received a few down-votes.

    I've just come to this report and it's in 'earlier stories' with only 5 posts. Seems to me if people are not bored with the reports then they've come to accept the inevitability security vulnerabilities.

    Sad day.
