Will the real [Breach X] please stand up?

By Mike Rothman

Do you remember that classic game show “To Tell the Truth?” It was great and trying to figure out who was the “real” person was always a challenge.

Unfortunately Visa and MasterCard are making all of us play the same game of late. There have been recent rumors running rampant (alliteration anyone?) about another data breach of a credit card processor (coverage: SCMag, Dark Reading). Allegedly on the scale of Heartland and that is bothersome. Especially when we can’t get any information from the banks or payment card brands. So we are forced to call is “Breach X” for the time being.
