Kyle Kennedy reports that new fraud reports have emerged related to the Heartland Payment Systems breach disclosed in January 2009 and that a credit union is now replacing additional cards:

Kathy Britt, chief operations officer for Lakeland-based MidFlorida, said the firm is issuing 12,000 new debit cards after recent fraud attempts stemming from a previous data breach at Heartland Payment Systems.

The credit union has about 80,000 debit card holders.
