I think that the people who are doing this... IE stealing millions of credit card numbers and bank information are the ones who issue the credit cards
in the first place. My theory is that they need more online security and more money to help themselves further advance their agendas.
For example, the rash of viruses that come out each day. The numbers keep getting greater and greater. Norton Antivirus updated their virus defs
almost once every 2-3 days, thus making more money as you need to renew your subscription to norton every 6-12 months on average. ($25.00 every year
for virus defs??? ) Could Norton, Mcafee, Microsoft be the ones hiring the hackers to create these different breeds of viruses?? Who Knows??
Back to the topic... If you read the stories above they clearly indicate that the person responsible for the 40 million credit card info stolen works
for a company in Atlanta which processes transactions for banks and merchants. So basically he works for the credit card company itself!!!
Maybe its a long shot, but what would the implications be if the credit card companies themselfs created all this. It could happen.
