Hey, remember all those debit cards and PINs that got stolen and stuff? Where hackers got into Office Max, made off with debit card accounts and encrypted PIN codes, decrypted the PINs, made counterfeit ATM cards, and withdraw lots of money and large amounts of people were forced to get their ATM card changed without anyone telling them the real reason why? Well, apparently Citigroup remembers too. Eventually.
“The banking industry is less than halfway through this latest scam, which will continue to affect large numbers of cardholders.”
The ATM PIN block attacks has other consequences besides just your money getting siphoned off by scammers 2,000 miles away.
