There seems to be an uptick in cybercrime lately, no? Some 200,000 Citibank customers had their accounts hacked at the beginning of May and are just finding out about it now, Reuters reports. Sony similarly dragged its feet when hackers gained access to an astonishing 77 million accounts in April and the company waited more than a week to tell customers their data had been compromised. The hackers got access to names, emails, account numbers and passwords, customers were notified this weekend, and Citibank has replaced cards for compromised accounts.
“Citigroup joins Google and Sony in victims club,” says the headline in the International Business Times. We have a Citibank card. Can we be in the victim’s club too?
