Sources: Global Payments breached – Wall Street Journal
Robin Sidel and Andrew R. Johnson report:
Global Payments Inc., which processes credit cards and debit cards for banks and merchants, has been hit by a security breach that has put some 50,000 cardholders at risk, according to people with knowledge of the situation.
Read more on the Wall Street Journal. Global Payments has not confirmed as of the time of this posting.
But 50,000? That’s a far cry from possibly 10 million. Is this the same breach that was reported earlier today by Brian Krebs or another breach?
Both Heartland Payment Systems and First Data Corp. have denied being involved in any of the breach reports from today.
