Company Behind Biggest Data Leak Ever To Disappear

Credit-card processor CardSystems, which lost the data of 40 million credit cards to a hacker -- data it wasn't even supposed to have -- is being bought out. The purchaser acknowleges that because of the security breach, CardSystems won't be allowed to process some credit card transactions after October 31, but is trying to come to an arrangement to keep service going. Can't say we're too sympathetic to their cause, and there are 40 million cardholders that probably have similar feelings.
