Cybercrime firm uncovered six active attacks on U.S. merchants

Jim Finkle reports:

The cyber security firm IntelCrawler said on Friday that it has uncovered six ongoing attacks at merchants across the United States whose credit card processing systems are infected with the same type of malicious software used to steal data from some 40 million credit cards at Target Inc.

So what are consumers to do with this information? Stop shopping at major retailers? How damaging is this type of report to the economy? Should IntelCrawler have disclosed which merchants even if active investigations are ongoing? Discuss.
