  1. I should also note that since this time we have started receiving automated Chinese calls and calls from Canada Revenue from the number 1800 395-8447 informing us of impending arrest and prosecution. I am guessing this is connected to this data breach.

  2. Hey Fox, first of all I am just one of many who trust your reporting.
    Having said that, maybe you can help me.Capitol one doesn't seem to be able to. A couple of weeks ago I thought I would make the call to Capitol One to see if our cards were among those that were breached. After being redirected to another phone number we were happy to discover that we were not among those unfortunate individuals that had their info accessed. But on Friday we were informed that our info was in fact breached.
    Fox have you any suggestions as to what I should do now? It is evident Capitol One is out of the loop on this issue. or is there a possibility that Capitol One was hacked again and this time my information was handed out? I see for about 2 weeks my credit card watch dog "credit Karma" was not showing any score on my file. And when the score did return my score dropped 20 points. Is there anyone Other than Capitol One I can call to get accurate information on my dilemma?

  3. How about jail time for all these crook executives?

  4. Uh oh… another Bradley Manning

  5. Lol at calling people like this Hackers.

  6. Incidents such as this one are the best argument for using cash, not credit cards. And when you use cash, the chances of you overspending are limited to the money in your wallet.

  7. As opposed to what? Exploiting the strength of the system/network? Title fail.

  8. Capital One just has a message on their web site saying affected users will be mailed. They should notify you if you were or not and if so what information about you was obtained. 1 year of protection is not enough, should be required to provide 10 years by law.

  18. Amazing how these multi billion dollar companies don't seem to have the resources to keep this from happening.

  19. Capitol One: "What's in your wallet?"

  20. The photo of the hacker looks like one of the usual suspects! I bet her defense in court will be, "Trump made me do it!".

  21. WHO KNEW ABOUT This Vulnerability? WHO Was SUPPOSE TO Check it? <— tisk tisk

  29. Remember when we were ALL told "clouds" are secure and unbreachable? Remember how we were ALL told drones flying surveillance in USA would never be armed?! …same thing
