Details are sketchy at best:

More than 10,000 bank customers in Germany have had their credit card
details stolen. The information was apparently taken from the
Landesbank Berlin and anonymously sent to the newspaper Frankfurter
Rundschau.

A spokesman for Landesbank Berlin said there were no PIN numbers in
the package:
We are holding the data while the police investigates. The enquiries
are ongoing so we can't give any more information. However, the stolen
package does not include secret pin numbers or other data that would
allow the illegal use of credit cards.
The package contained customers' names, addresses, credit card and
bank account numbers and recent transactions.
Landesbank customers have been advised to check their accounts for
inconsistencies.
