You’re Not Paranoid If They Really Are Out to Get You.

imageLooks like 2014 is shaping up to be the year of the hacked credit card.  My school’s been hacked; Many retailers have had to own up to the fact they’ve been hacked.

Just about every major retailer has been hacked.  Hedge funds have been hacked and their trades rerouted across the net.  Hacked.  hacked. hacked.

Well yesterday, I got a call from my credit card company.  Some ass-hat used my credit card to purchase auto parts, and went on a tear charging up several thousand dollars in fraudulent charges.

Another credit card cancelled.

Now I have to reset my passwords on just about every shopping site I’ve ever used.
