- DB admin at Certegy, a local but global business, steals millions of credit histories and information:


The misappropriated information included names, addresses and telephone numbers as well as, in many cases, dates of birth and bank account or credit card information. Approximately 2.3 million records are believed to be at issue, with approximately 2.2 million containing bank account information and 99,000 containing credit card information. The company is still investigating the time period over which the misappropriations occurred.


p.s. note the corporate spin by the host/acquiring corporation: "No Fraudulent Activity Detect," which is nonsense, as SPAM, credit offerings, and unsolicited telephone activity has already started!
