    Members of the CurrentC pilot program are receiving a notice today that the service has been breached, with an unspecified number of user email addresses having been compromised. MCX says that no other information was taken. The group reminds to avoid phishing scams, saying that they will never be contacted by CurrentC or MCX for their financial information over email.

    If I were a CurrentC retailer, I'd be taking a good look at Pay again. Who's gonna trust CurrentC now?

    I'm sure there's a collective "Oh " going around some corporate boardrooms right now.

    Here's another article I found which isn't discussing the breaches, but talks about the technical details behind standard CC payments, Google Wallet and ApplePay. http://feeds.arstechnica.com/~r/arst...Uk/story01.htm
    Gives me a new appreciation for what happens when I swipe my card.
