It would be, that would help individuals determine whether or not they
shopped at any of these locations (making them more or less
vulnerable). Unfortunately, I haven't seen many reports (Heartland
isn't disclosing their customer list). If someone wanted to start a
google spreadsheet on it, we could incorporate it. However, we
already know some of the basic details:
"Heartland Payment Systems, Inc., a NYSE company trading under the
symbol HPY, delivers credit/debit/prepaid card processing, payroll,
check management and payments solutions to more than 250,000 business
locations nationwide." per their http://2008breach.com/.
And "Contacted more than 150,000 merchant locations to help them
understand this data breach and what we are doing to prevent future
incursions.", also per http://2008breach.com/.
We don't have any indication (outside of media speculation) as to how
many people/cards are affected, and what the percentages are. So
that's why we're tracking bank disclosures. Hopefully someone
(Heartland, Visa/Mastercard) will release a total, but in the interim,
we'll keep the list updated.
Also, and just as a general note, this list isn't to point fingers at
banks either. I think we all recognize that they are, if anything,
victims of the breach. Same would apply to any merchant list
