What's in Your Wallet?

I was just reading about the latest online credit card theft. It involved about 130 MILLION credit card numbers. That's right, 130 MILLION.

No wonder my Credit Card company sent me a new card a few months ago.

It was also interesting where he got the Credit Card numbers. He and his co-conspirators targeted 7-Eleven, Hannaford Brothers Co. (supermarket chain), T.J. Maxx, Barnes & Noble, Sports Authority, and OfficeMax. They hacked into these companies and put what is called a "sniffer" program in to locate and steal credit card numbers. These numbers weren't from a web-based shopping program. They came from the companies' corporate websites.

A lot has been said recently about Credit Card companies needing to be more secure against hacking. Well in this case, it shows that regular companies need to be more secure and do a better job protecting their customer's credit card numbers.

School Time Again!

Tomorrow is the first day of school for my kids this year. They had an awesome summer. And still they want to go back to school. The school got new playground equipment over the summer. Hopefully the neighborhood kids won't deface and tear it apart like they did with the old equipment.

I have a 2nd grader and a 3rd grader this year. We met their teachers on Friday and it looks like they got good ones.

Got to go get their stuff ready for tomorrow.

And I need to get a run in sometime today.
