The bank’s public relations firm denies that Community Bank’s computer systems were compromised.

    “Pat Spadafore of Eric Mower & Associates, acting as a spokesman for Community Bank, tells 7 News in an e-mail that the VISA debit card network was apparently compromised.”

    I’d like to see that actual email. It sounds like the little community bank bank is saying VisaNet got hacked, not them. But only their cards were affected. Right.
