When the standard doesn't reflect the reality of the situation, I
would argue that credit card processors are FAR better off having a
real security assessment done by competent consultant resources,
rather than have automated tools run by "certified" individuals that
don't have the knowledge to interpret the results.
I agree that something is better than nothing, but the PCI DSS program
gives nothing but a false sense of security. The processors should be
made to very clearly understand that PCI compliance is only meaningful
to the PCI people - it does not reflect whether or not the environment
can be breached in the real world. I have yet to see a PCI DSS
certified environment that would allow me to sleep at night if I was
responsible for it.
