Both Visa and MasterCard are reporting that over 10 million customers of both Credit Card companies have had their information hacked into.

Krebs has been quoted on their Security blog. What they’ve failed to mention though is if this is payback from Anonymous as they have gone after both companies before. Or if this is another group of hackers. Alerts where sent out last week to banks as the Hack happened between Jan. 21 and Feb. 25.
Credit Cards them selves where not the target, however the processing of them was.
We’ve seen in the past that after both companies stopped letting donations to Wikileaks, that Anonymous hacked into both companies. Could this be their doing again is the question.
