Remember last month when a credit card payment processor was forced to admit a security breach that could impact 100 million people? Well, if you were lucky enough not to get caught up in that breach, there's apparently another one to worry about. Visa and Mastercard are issuing a new warning over a different payment processor whose system was apparently compromised as well. At this rate, it's getting silly to have static credit card numbers, since it seems like we're replacing our cards every few months anyway.
